London Gazette 26/3/1926 has a notice of an EGM held in Rotterdam 16/3/1926 to formally wind up the Upnor Shipbreaking Co due to insufficient funds. Charles G Clark of 64 Basinghall St London appointed liquidator. Notice of a creditors eeting to be held 31/3/1926 at 50 gresham St EC2 is in the same edition

In one of my books there's a brief mention of 'Upnor Shipbreaking Co. Ltd.' being in existance between 1922-1925. There's also a small mention in The Times of them salvaging material from the 'Bulwark', off Sheerness, in 1925.

The Upnor Shipbuilding Company is not listed in Shipbuilders of the Thames and Medway, P Banbury.
The only mention I can find is on the canmore rcahms website.
There was however a Upnor Shipbreaking Company, (1914-24) try google for what little there is.

Does anyone have and information on the "Upnor Shipbuilding Company"?  It went out of business in 1926.  I have come across a reference to it owning and (partially) salvaging the wreck of HMS Natal (home port Chatham) in the Cromarty Firth.  I believe this was as a result of it having some experience in this field working on HMS Bulwark, sunk in similar circumstances.
