The other one is much more detailed and by a rather self-effacing author who doesn’t actually mention his own name, however Crawshaw may give us a clue since in his list of sources he mentions “The Port of Lancaster: A.R.

I hope I’m not infringing anyone’s copyright by uploading these scans but if I am then please get in touch to let me know and I will remove them.
