BRITISH AND COMMONWEALTH MERCHANT SHIPS IN SERVICE - 1954
BRITISH AND COMMONWEALTH MERCHANT SHIPS IN SERVICE - 1954





INTRODUCTION



In these pages I am intending to gradually build up lists of the ships in service with various British and Commonwealth shipping companies of all types, from small coastal craft and ferries to ocean liners. The year 1954 has been chosen because I have easy access to records for that year. Whilst it is relatively modern I hope it will be of interest to researchers. Some of the ships listed were quite old even in 1954; some from the 1890s but the majority were built between the 1930s and 1950s

For some companies I have complete fleet lists from inception to closure or up to date and these will be linked from the relevant page of this series when I put them on the internet. In addition I will link from relevant pages to other pages dealing with the company concerned eg the Company's own page if there is one, or to the pages of other researchers dealing with the companies concerned or some aspect of the ships concerned.

All in all I hope the pages will eventually provide a significant research aid.

The pages will show (eventually) the name of the company and, where available, address in 1954, in brackets the names of subsidiary companies, their hull and funnel markings and the type of trade ie passenger, freight, tanker.

For some of the ships I will be able to supply photographs for researchers' own use




USING THE PAGES



The pages are laid out by company with one page per company, giving all relevant details. Some additional details may be available from me on request by e-mail.

If you know the company concerned then this should be reasonably easy, although companies did change names and sometimes use multiple names. If you don't find the company listed then either I have not got around to them or they are listed under a different name.

If you are looking for a particular ship and do not know the company name use my Pinpoint Search Engine from the link below, put in the ship name and see what it comes up with !
