Ahoy Zelda,
There's the difference, some ship names, never changes, and some change twice a year, and then the building years, that's also important for searching the right ship records.Anyway you're welcome with these data records, it's just a matter of time looking for these, and I do have about 12 LR's of ships, plus the Cd-rom, so most of the demanded are coming out.

Ahoy,
In my opinion the Tetela was built in 1926:
List of vessels constructed by Cammell Laird shipbuilders:
921 V0918 *TETELA REFRIGERATED DRY CARGO 1926 ELDERS & FYFFES UK

The Elstree Grange was built as Samettrick, don't have a pic of her, sorry
Samettrick 02 08 1.44 Lease lend to Britain
1944 MOWT ( P & O Steam Nav.Co, London)
1947 ELSTREE GRANGE, Houlder Line Ltd (Houlder Bros Co, London) - British flag.
1960 KOPALNIA MIECHOWICE, Polish Gov't, Szczecin - Polish flag (Polish SS Co)
1972 Polish SS Co.
8.1.72 Damaged rudder off Portuguese coast, towed Lisbon but CTL.
1972 Scrapped Split.
