Gripfast to Haig Rose

This page has been updated to include basic information about those that lost their lives. The data is by courtesy of the CWGC and I have included information about those who served on the ships but who had a normal burial as well as those lost at sea and recorded on the Tower Hill memorial. In most cases further family information about the individuals is available on the CWGC website - External Ref. #7.

She was a 1,109 grt steam cargo ship that survived bombing and gunfire from aircraft on 29 January 1940 at a position 10 miles SE by E from Flamborough Head but was sunk in a further aircraft attack on 9 July 1942 at position 50° 26’ N 02° 59’ W.
