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.

Belgravian

She was a 3,136 GRT steam refrigerated cargo ship that was hit by a torpedo fired by German submarine U-372 on 5 August 1941 at an approximate position 53° 03' N 15° 54' W and sunk the following day. The death of Mr. Lye was presumably unrelated to the sinking but I do not have further information about this.
