More about Andrew Bell

Andrew has no known grave but is remembered on the Plymouth Naval Memorial. He was serving aboard H.M.S. Stephen Furness which was requisitioned by the Admiralty for use as a Squadron Supply Ship (1915) and later as an Armed Boarding Steamer. She sank at 16:15 on 13 December, 1917 of the West Coast of the Isle of Man. The ship was enroute from Lerwick to Liverpool for repairs when she was struck by a torpedo from German Submarine UB-64.
