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 [7].

Stonepool

She was a 4,803 grt steam cargo ship that was damaged on 13 October 1939 by gunfire from German submarine U-42 at position 48° 40' N, 15° 30' W. The ship returned accurate fire causing the submarine to dive leaving their gun crew on deck. Stonepool summoned help by radio as the submarine surfaced to rescue the gun crew. U-42 was sunk shortly after by HMS Ilex and HMS Imogen. She was sunk on 11 September 1941 by torpedoes which are believed to have been fired by U-207 which was sunk by convoy escorts so there is no written report of this.
