VESSELS BUILT AT SUNDERLAND

Listed in year of first registry.

I cannot say it for many of these 'decades of build' pages, but this page, re vessels built in the 1920s, is close to being complete. At least so it seems to me. With major input from John Oliver. Corrections, large or small, are invited. Note creating lists is most difficult since, for reasons unknown, Lloyd's Registers for these years seem not to be WWW available. (Later names, etc. done)

1920, 1921, 1922, 1923, 1924, 1925, 1926, 1927, 1928, 1929.

1920 (data so far has been built up from elsewhere in the site. Can you provide a list? Just a start.)

What were the official build numbers for 1920? 'Where Ships Are Born' states 67 vessels & 333,335 tons. Do please advise me if you know.

1921 (Just a start. Can you provide a list? Do please advise me if you have data. Corrections will surely be required in the data that follows.)

Only rarely do you see Lloyd's Registers for the 1920s available for purchase. A copy of the 1921/22 edition, which had been rebound along the way, was sold via e-Bay on Feb. 24, 2015 - for GBP 140.00 or about U.S. $216. Alas the U.K. vendor was not prepared to ship the volume to Canada.

Only rarely do you see Lloyd's Registers for the 1920s available for purchase. A copy of the 1926/27 edition, in two volumes, the main register volume & the appendix (ship owners etc.), was sold via e-Bay on Nov. 17, 2013 - for GBP 235.00 or U.S. $385.26. Strangely the listing is still visible (no images, however) in Feb. 2015 - here.
