I am aware of a picture of the vessel and crew but unable to say if the crew featured were any of the sadly lost men

Thanks Laurie.
Do you have a link to the newspaper article?
I have the Tower Hill Memorial info and the info from Trevors Trawler.
Any other info will be welcomed.

Its a subscription service

all the articles are fairly general if I find anything that increases the understanding will post prob better if I do find anything to email a picture of the article but I would be surprised if you found out where the wreck is such a shame with all those lives lost not knowing where they rest cheers.

GY200 Ostero

Doing some research, I came across GY200 Ostero.

One piece of info points towards this being a Bannister Trawler - so, registered with any of the 4 companies.

However, another source lists:
Name: OSTERO
Type: Fishing Vessel
Launched: 03/12/1896
Completed: 01/1897
Builder: Edwards Brothers
Yard: North Shields
Yard Number: 539
Dimensions: 138grt, 45nrt, 101.0 x 20.6 x 10.8ft
Engines: T3cyl (11, 17 & 30 x 21ins), 44nhp
Engines by: North-Eastern Marine Engineering Co Ltd, Sunderland
Propulsion: 1 x Screw
Construction: Iron
Reg Number: 106700

History:
01/1897 White Star Steam Fishing Co Ltd, Grimsby
by 1910 Henry Smethurst, Grimsby
by 1918 George Smith, Grimsby
1922 William Would, Grimsby
1924 Walter Garratt, Grimsby
1930 Fred B Jeffs, Grimsby
1931 Thomas W Baskcomb, Grimsby
1935 Broken up

So no connections to Bannister at all.

THe only other info I found was a mention of her in a Dutch report from 11 January 1900. Sadly, my Dutch is not quite good enough to understand all of it.

This extract is from the Scarborough papers dated 1916....

Grimsby as well suffered badly at the same time from U-boat attacks. Eleven trawlers were sunk on one night. They were The Andromeda, Mercury, Resino, Restless, Vivella, Rego, Devonshire, Beachwood, Britannia, Welsby and John Grant. The trawlers were stripped of everything useful and sank. Some trawlers escaped. One Hull trawler cut her gear and escaped under fire. The boats containing the crews were picked up by the Ostero and towed into Grimsby.

Any info gratefully received....
John

Gy49

Hi all

I wonder if anyone can help me identify the trawler (front, left) in the attached picture?
Its number appears to be GY49, so I think would be either Croton (1914-1920), Larwood (1929-35) or Persian Empire (1945-1954).
Looking at the photo, its about 3.5in by 2in, and the paper seems similar to ones from the 1930's to 50's which makes me think one of the later two.
However I have seen similar photo-types from WW1, so she could be the Croton.

I'm also interested in the wreck, but I thought if I could identify the trawler, which is perhaps salvaging cargo, it would help narrow down the timeframe for the picture.

Thanks in advance for any comments.

Hello
I'm currently trying to track down a photograph of the Grimsby Registered Steam Trawler Defender (GY1279) which was wrecked at Skerryvore near Tiree on 14/11/1909. She was built in 1903 in Hull and was owned at the time of her loss by 'Alec Black'.
I'm hoping that with all the specialist knowledge of Grimsby boats on this thread that someone might be able to point me in the right direction.
Any help appreciated

Hi Thanks for that. I've pretty much exhausted all the newspaper reports but thanks for the pointer. I was really hoping that there may still be a photo of her somewhere that might yet pop up!

Hi. I know that this is a very old thread, but Jon Oddson was my great grandfather. I am doing some research on my family history, and I was wondering if you have any other information on him.

Thank you.

If you go into the Gallery and put "Ross Khartoum" into Search, there are a few photos of Ross Khartoum - unfortunately most of them show her aground near Aberdeen. There are photos of other Ross ships in the gallery too.

O.36 Prince Charles - O.35 Alfred-Edith

I'am looking for two steamers from Oostende that were sold to the firm Dobson Ship Repaireing C°., Grimsby in July 1933.

Both were built by Cook, Welton & Gemmel in Beverley for A. Golder-B. Brickx & co. and sold in 1928 to S.A. Pêchernies Nationales Belges. On 06-07-1933 were both vessels sold to Dobson, and was the Belgian ships registry closed.


O.36 Prince Charles built 1904 - 112 feet - 22 feet - 12.10 feet built 1904 GT 226 - Nt 102,11
O.35 Alfred-Edith built 1908 - Gt 262 - Nt 113.80

I'm special looking for information of the further career of both vessels in England. First picture O.35 Alfred-Edith - 2° O.36 Prince Charles.
