About the Museum
Coxswain Henry Blogg was a local man who became a national hero. The RNLI's most decorated lifeboat man served for 53 years on Cromer's lifeboats. He was awarded three Gold and four Silver RNLI medals for gallantry, as well as the George Cross and British Empire Medal. With the assistance of his dedicated crew he saved 873 lives from the North Sea. The museum illustrates the history of Cromer's lifeboats and tells the story of Henry Blogg's most famous rescues. For 37 years he served as Coxswain at Cromer and from 1935-45 his lifeboat was the legendary HF Bailey, which is the centrepiece of the museum. Henry retired as Coxswain in 1947 and died in 1954.
