The Small Print

This Elder Dempster website has been established to tell something of the story of the company and its staff. Every effort is made to ensure a high standard of content and presentation, and to provide something of interest to those who pass by - and especially to all former Elder Dempster staff.

The intention is for you to enjoy your visit, and it is hoped that you will accept this small print in the spirit in which it is made.
