A memorial plate placed on the ground at the front of the Royston Grange memorial by the Union Centers of Sailors of Uruguay. Interesting to note they considered it to be one of Her Majesties Ships.



The Steam Turbine Vessel (STV) Royston Grange was carrying 61 crew members and 12 passengers. The Tien Chee Chinese oil tanker, operating under the flag convenience of Liberia collided with the STV Royston Grange in dense fog on May 11 1972. It was bound from Buenos Aires to London, packed with a cargo of beef and butter. Although the ship did not sink in the collision, everyone perished in the fire which subsequently engulfed it.
