I have a build date of 1947. Owned by AF Henry & Macgregor of course. Someone with access to sources will expand this out considerably very shortly I think

Hi Barry

Denwick Head built 1947 completed by J Crown & Sons Ltd, Sunderland as the INGWI for Rolf Wigand, Bergen. Purchased by Henry & MacGregor in 1955 and renamed Denwick Head. (O.N. 186638). 'Fraid I don't have any history after 1957.

She was the second to bear the name for H&M the other being built in 1923 for Spillers SS Co Cardiff, as the Wheatbake (263g O.N. 145730), purchased by H&M in 1933 and renamed Denwick Head. 1946 Sold to Lochbroom Trading Co Ltd and r/n Moorfield. 1948 Sold to Mac Shipping Ltd Glasgow. 1955 Sold for breaking up
