Merchant Vessels requisitioned by Admiralty

Recommended Posts

hen190782

Good Morning

 

As part of research about the Workman Clark shipyard in Belfast and its employees in the Great War, we want to identify merchant vessels made in that shipyard which were requisitioned by the Admiralty for use as Armed Merchant Cruisers, transports, hospital ships, "Q-ships", etc.

 

I would be grateful for advice as to whether there are any websites/sources that list requisitioned ships.

 

Thanks,

 

Nigel

For British Warships you could start at this website - http://www.naval-history.net/WW1NavyBritishShips-Dittmar1.htm 

 

This lists them all alphabetically in three batches. You can search each batch using the "Find" (Ctrl F) function using the search term "WORKMAN". The A-G batch registers 20 hits for "Workman Clark".

I won't be able to get to it for a couple of days, but I should be able to provide a number of merchant ship names.  Stay tuned.

Nigel,

 

Attached is a text file listing merchant ships hired for government service during 1914-18.  Further details, such as dates of service periods and rates of hire, can be found in the Service List (available on Ancestry).  This does not include vessels taken up in the Liner Requisition Scheme, though many of the ships listed here were later moved to the Liner List.

 

I expect there are a few ships missing.  If you spot any errors or omissions I'd be interested to hear of them.

 

Regards,

   Ralph
