Search the register of British ships

Shipping registers record the ship’s name, official number, port of registration and other details. However as the registers’ entries are not in any particular order, finding information about a specific ship is very difficult. Robert Le Maistre, a National Archives volunteer, has created a composite alphabetical index to all the microfilm registers we hold. The index provides basic information about the ship, the correct microfilm roll and register entry.

Enter the whole or part of a ship's name and/or year of voyage.
