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].

Ethelwulf

Ethelwulf was a 185 GRT steam trawler completed in 1903 by Smith's Dock Co. for an unknown owner. Two trawlers, Ethelwulf and T.W.Mould were fishing with a number of other trawlers from the North Shields fleet when two loud explosions were heard at about 3am on 1 December 1918 and the two boats were engulfed with flames. It is presumed that both vessels struck mines. Ironically, Ethelwulf had been deployed by the navy between 1914 and 1915 as a minesweeper.

A discussion on uboat.net suggests the possibility that the vessel was sunk by UB 72 but this is unproved although that submarine was certainly in the area at the time. The same thread includes the name of the three gunners who were on board and their names have been added to the table below.

Excel

Excel was a 50 GRT sailing ketch built in Hull in either 1891 or 1893 and registered at Lowestoft as owned by Peter Moxey of 94 St. Leonard's Road South Lowestoft. Her Official Number was 97929. I can find no specific record of her loss but her registration was closed in 1915. The most likely scenario given the date and location is that she struck a mine and was sunk.
