    I came across this site when I was trying to find out about one of the ships that Alfred Henry Slack was on. They have dates and details of battles etc. and also pictures of the ships.

    I thought this might be of interest to anyone looking for ships that their ancestors were on.

    I have just found another "useful" scribbled note that I made ages ago :D, (but couldn't find when someone was asking about ship's crew recently) :headbang:.

    It shows ships in ports all over England in the 1881 census. It shows crew, names, ages, where they were born and occupations.

    If you look up SHIPS IN PORT U.K. 1881-Intro-Angelfire then scroll down the page, it lists every port in the U.K. and every ship that was docked at that time, (even small private boats).
    It also shows all crew aboard at the time + Names, Ages, where they were born and occupations.

    The site is run by Bob Sanders who has family and maritime history page showing old navy uniforms etc.

    I haven't looked through it all yet, but it all looks very helpful :)

    Hope you all enjoy looking through it, and maybe find some more of your elusive ancestors :)
