Looking through Lloyd's Registers for the period 1941-45 the following are listed aside of the usual managed fleets.

1941/42 edition entered managed list

EMPIRE GHYLL 2,010g. /41 still listed 1944/45 edition


1942/43 edition entered managed list

EMPIRE HEATH 2013g/42 disappears from 1944/45 edition managed list


1943/44 edition entered managed list

EMPIRE CLANSMAN 2,065/42
LIEUTENANT ROBERT MORY 2,167g/22


MOWT bareboat chartered from US War Shipping Administration.

CHARLES H SALTER 1778/42


1944/45 edition entered managed list


EMPIRE DAUGHTER 2,066/44


MOWT bareboat chartered from US WSA

CYRUS SEARS 1814/42
TULLY CROSBY 1791/43
WILLIAM BURSLEY 1791/43

Of all the above vessels only the last 3 remained listed as under management in the 1948/49 edition of LR

Unfortunately I do not have access to 1945/46 edition so cannot add anything else other that the French Lt Robert Mory had been managed by G.Heyn & Sons Ltd, Belfast until 1943.

That is a total of 4 Emp standard; 4 American standards and the Frenchmen up to mid 1944.
