i understand it was attacked off spurn by a u-boat ,with the loss of all hands ,but cannot identify which one sank it .

GY.218 161 Tons Built 1897. 1-6pdr. Admiralty No 818.

Just googled the UBoat website: Margate was sunk by UC 50 under the command of Rudolf Seuffer.

Thats all the Toghill one says as well Peter. The only guaranteed way to get the Submarine number and her commander would be to search the Bundesmarine archive in Germany but I think that would cost money.
