Big Lil (Hull’s Headscarf Heroes)

Lil Bilocca (known as Bi Lil) was a woman from Hull, a fisherman’s wife and she led a March on Parliament to have safety laws brought in to improve the life chances of our fishing fleet after the triple trawler disaster. These laws were implemented both in the UK and around the world.


  1. I grew up in the North East and went to school just north of Hull In Bridlington. Holidays were in North Shields. Great to hear a song honouring the women who knew how tough & fragile life could be. Great song, Mockingbirds!
