Paul, what Lloyds? Can you access Lloyd's Register of Shipping for particular years online? or do you need to own specific registers?

Unfortunatly I do have rather a lot of them from 1924 onwards. They are making sure the house does not blow away in a hurricane. :geek:

For a good on-line alternative you could subscribe to:-

http://www.miramarshipindex.org.nz

It does not contain details of every ship but it not very expensive and worth it's weight in Gold!!

Miramar would be my first Port of Call and can save you a lot of time by steering you in the right direction.

Wish they were...........

Unfortunatly a second hand book is only worth what someone else is prepared to pay for it! and they are worth more to me as works of reference.

Some LR's are scanned and can be seen on-line via the Port Cities Southampton site

Re YARVIC, she had several UK owners after sold out of naval service in 1951 and was with Lapthorn 1959-1964 and features in Ken Garrett's book on them if you have it.
Lengthened and re-engined at various times.
When sold to the French company Paul mentions in 1968 she was renamed TAILLEFER and was broken up at Vannes in 1978.

I knew she rang a bell George but I could not remember where I'd seen her mentioned before.

These Lloyd Registers seem like gold dust. I see one on e-bay LRofS 1944-45 Secret starting at £175 with seven days to go. I will just have to stick with Miramar and Equasis.

Some go for silly prices but if you really want something then you will be prepared to pay for it. This one is probably more expensive because its a wartime issue.


I've got 39/40 and 47/48 but nothing inbetween. 'Merchant Fleets 1939' fill's a bit of the gap and I've got the three Volumes of Lloyds Was Losses, which combined with Miramar cover most things.

Its the ones prior to 1920 which are the most rare.

Re: YARVIC / LLoyd's Registers

Post by yorkieman » Mon Aug 02, 2010 4:09 pm

1905 and 1927 and supplements here if anyone ever wants something looking up, but both very tender especially 1927 which started life with a Trinidad company, the paper has become very brittle and there are wormholes in the cover!
These old issues are part of shipping history in themselves as all were embossed with the name of the company ordering them, a nice touch.

I have Jordan's Merchant Fleet's 1939 and find it very useful.
Bye the way, I open up McLaren's Book Shop on an odd Saturday now when the proprietor George Newlands is away at a book fair or on holiday. If there is any specific book you are looking for I will see if it is in stock. There has been the odd Lloyds Register, but as Paul stated earlier silly prices.
