I don't know if this is of interest to any Swan Hunter fans. Its a single page that I found amongst my yard lists. Not strictly Tyne Shipbuilding as it was at Southwick, Sunderland, but the Swan Hunter connection made me post it here. I have no idea if this was everything built at that yard or one page of several.

Its a FULL list of all Swans Ships built at Southwick Yard.

Its also got some infromation that my Official Yard List does not have, so very good find, Tom.

I have duly printed a copy and added it to my List.

Thanks.

EDIT by George .... moved to Sunderland section where SHWR already listed.

No wonder I couldn't find it where I left it George!
Glad it was of interest but what a strange sequence of yard numbers. Is that because they were related to SHWR on the Tyne or is there another explanation?

In a word YES.

The Yard Numbers run from 0709 (DOTTEREL) and cover Neptune, Wallsend, Sunderland and Glasgow.

Final Number is 2030 (HMS Bristol.)

Swan Hunter starts with 0001 Atlantic Causeway.

Yards Covered in new sequence were Walker, Wallsend, Hebburn, South Shields, Haverton Hill, South Bank (Tees), Neptune, and Hebburn Dock.
