There is another song about the Whitby rescue; The Visitor by Wendy Arrowsmith

Wendy won Saltburn Folk Festival Songwriting Competition in 2007 with this song, and released it on her CD Now Then? in the same year.

Hurry, boys, hurry! Clear away the snow.
Steady, horses, steady! There's many miles to tow.
Hurry, boys, hurry! We'll pray along the way,
As we drag the Whitby lifeboat o'er the hill to Robin Hood's Bay.

You can find it on the Yorkshire Garland site; The Visitor
