Contacting Shipwrecks UK

Please use the online form below, or email, to let us know what you are seeking...

Shipwrecks UK welcomes your enquiries, and will usually be uniquely qualified to answer them if they concern any aspect of shipwrecks in the seas surrounding Britain and Ireland. Please contact us using the online form below, or by email, in the first instance. We regret that we will normally be unable to assist without requesting a contribution to our ongoing work; this has produced the invaluable Shipwrecks UK research tool that is available only through ourselves, and we continue to enhance this encyclopaedic and powerful resource.

The interactive, ever-expanding Shipwrecks UK resource will not be made available on-line unless and until we can be confident of suporting our costs, but we use the system extensively in answering your queries. It is a powerful tool for the maritime information detective and we can use it for your benefit.

We particularly welcome enquiries from those with a keen interest in our maritime heritage, including genealogists, whether personal or professional researchers. For all enquiries that we agree to take forward, we will provide a comprehensive document (normally in pdf format); these are well-received. We can offer unique capabilities, but our charges are very modest (and may be as little as 20).

Shipwrecks UK will be very happy to quote for providing e-books covering details of multiple wrecks for a wide range of parameters such as date ranges, cargoes, locations, cause of loss, voyage origin, etc (and permutations of these and many others to suit your requirements). We will normally incorporate the thematic maps that we can produce to match your enquiry. We provide invaluable data for Environmental Impact Assessments and historical maritime information supporting similar surveys.

Response to enquiries and additional research is coordinated by Alan Jones, drawing on the considerable expertise of Richard Larn OBE (and Bard of Cornwall).

You are welcome to submit 'no cost' enquiries but please start your enquiry with "FREE REQUEST" and recognise that you will receive a follow-up response only if we are free to do so and (normally) the enquiry also offers benefits to Shipwrecks UK. You are always welcome to tell us about any connections with shipwreck events.


From time to time enquiries have gone adrift, sometimes overlooked as a result of disruptive spam. When this happens, and you do not receive an appropriate response from us, we offer our apologies and you may need to re-submit your enquiry.
