List of ships built in and around Pembroke Dock from 1816 to 1922
1) This list is taken largely from a semi-official list compiled in the Yard not long before it closed, It is now known to include some inaccuracies of detail. To this I have added certain conjecture & surmise. Some liberties with the nomendature of ship types, e.g. using 'Battleship' long before such vessels, strictly, existed. For an accurate & details list, see Lawrence Phillip's book.(2) Launches were normally made at High Water Spring Tides & only in the case of small vessels was is possible to launch two on one tide. hence the frequency of a second launch occurring almost exactly one month after a first.(3) No:91 Juno (1844) was refitted in 1878, renamed Atalanta & subsequently lost with all hands on her first voyage with a new Name. It says much for the quality of her original construction, if not for the policies of the Admiralty, that she was considered worth giving a refit & new lease of life 34 years after launch. Her fate also adds strength to the sailor's superstition about changing a ship's name.(4) Some ships were years on the slip before launch & others were slow in being completed after launch, for various reasons.
