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].

Clan Murray

Clan Murray was a 4,839 GRT steam cargo ship completed in 1897 by W.Doxford & Sons for The Clan Line Steamers Ltd. and managed by Cayzer, Irvine & Co. She was sunk on 29 May 1917 by torpedo fired by German submarine UC-55 at position 50° 57' N, 10° 21' W - approximately 40 nautical miles West by South of Fastnet. She was en route from Port Pirrie to Belfast with a cargo of wheat.

According to Charles Hocking [35]:

The attack took place at 4 a.m. on May 29th 1917. Captain Woodall and the third officer Mr. A.G. Macpherson, were blown off the bridge by the force of the explosion. The captain recovered sufficiently to stop the engines and then went below to destroy the code books - he was never seen again. Nearly all on board were lost when the Clan Murray foundered - a total of 11 Europeans and 53 lascars. The Clan Murray had only recently been armed, having had a 4.7 inch gun fitted aft at Sierra Leone on her homeward voyage.
