Thumbs up Upwey Grange - 1925 -1940

Hi people, I have just found the site and registered. I am a Pensioner,( just), who is Not Ex Navy, but having many Cousins who were.

I am looking in the first instance for a picture of MV Upwey Grange, sunk by U 37 off Ireland in Aug 1940. I have much textual info on this, and detail of a distant relative lost aboard, which I will add later if anyone expresses an interest. I am off reading posts and looking for pictures for now.
Have a good one.

Regards Enurgumen

A warm welcome to Ships Nostalgia from a cold and snowy Michigan, Enurgumen.
I think you'll enjoy all that we have here. As usual, our members have come through with a picture--here are a few details of her sinking:

Enurgumen, we would be more than interested in anything you can tell us. All I know of this ship, built in 1925, was that she was the first to bear the name and Upwey Grange was the first motorship in the Houlders fleet; she was fitted with Fairfield built Sulzer engine. She was torpedoed and sunk by U37 on 8th August 1940, at 66N – 15W and sadly half her crew were lost. The survivors were picked up by the trawler Naniwa after two days adrift.

PS. As the ship deserved its own thread, I have started it here under your name and copied across the various very helpful links that the others have made.

Re Upwey Grange

Hi Tonga and Gents, the textual data given on the link to the Sunk by Submarine posting yesterday, was the extent of my knowledge, that I was offering to share. Apart from the fact that I understand a relative of mine , by marriage was in the crew and perished. Daniel Navarette Aedo, b Talcahuno Chile. His Son, also Daniel was also lost at sea soon afterwards.
I am trying to get some starting detail for that.

The wealth of information that your seafaring members have added, have helped me immensely and sadly I can add nothing more.

I have today recommended the site to two of my old sea dog friends.

Most grateful
Enurgumen

Upwey Grange

My grandfather was an engineer on the ship - i have just discoved a book that Houlder Brothers issued to family members that has details of all of the ships that were lost and the names of seamen lost. If anyone would like an extract i can scan and forward it.

Regards

Jim
