"Luminous" - Any ideas

Hi, I am hoping someone could help me out.
I have just found out that my gr grandfather Francis McNulty drowned on 7/9/1954 off the coast of Genoa, Italy and the ship he was on was called "Luminous", he was a Fireman from Willington.Tyne, Northumberland.
I thought it would be easy to find out a bit more but dont know what kind of ship it was etc.
If you could give me any ideas that would be great.
