I have recently purchased this item as I dabble in antiques as a hobby. It seems to belong to the battleship Indefatigable. I wonder if you would know what it is as I have no idea.

Thank you,

My fathers uncle was killed on HMS Indefatigable at the Battle of Jutland, he was ordinary seaman Samuel Murphy J/43200 (DEV). My father who has since passed away has always spoken of him. I was wondering if there are any way or means I could get some information on Samuel. I would be most grateful for any assistance you could offer me.

Kind regards,

My great grandfather was also a stoker on the ship, Bartholomew Rogers from Wexford in Ireland. I have a group photo (see below) but there are no names on it or where it was taken though the family says its a group of people on the ship. We think he (Bartholemew Rogers a stoker aged 44) is the man on the right with a pipe because of the family resemblance.Did Sylvia (see message 2) get any responses as I would also be interested as I have no other photos and cannot identify anyone in the one I have?

Kind regards,

My great grandfather Edward George Bourne, Stoker 1st Class, went down on HMS Indefatigable on 31-05-1916. The current family have never seen a photograph or known much about him. If anyone has any information or even a photo we would be very grateful.

I would like to contact the relatives of Chief Petty Officer Patrick Carroll who drowned when H.M.S. Indefatigable went down on 31 May 1916 following an attack by the enemy in the Battle of Jutland. In 1911, Patrick Carroll was married, and his wife Margaret was living in Carysfort Avenue Blackrock, Co. Dublin with their two children, Eileen and John. Any information or a photograph of Patrick, would be most gratefully received.

Best wishes,
Ken Kinsella
