Vessels Lost in WW2 Recorded on the Memorial at Tower Hill

This page includes basic information about the ships and how they were lost, a photo of the relevant panel(s) of the Tower Hill Memorial and information about those that lost their lives extracted from the CWGC database. In the table I have included information about those who served on the ships but who had a normal burial as this seems appropriate to me. In some cases further family information about the individuals may be available on the CWGC website - External Ref. #7.

Barnby

She was a 4,813 GRT steam cargo ship that was sunk on 22 May 1941 by a torpedo fired by German submarine U-111 at position 60° 30' N 34° 12' W. The CWGC database has a later date for the death of Mr. Fletcher. It is presumed that Mr. Moore survived the attack but died shortly afterwards.
