Does anyone know if there is a list of which slips built each vessel? I asked at the Dockyard Museum yesterday but they couldn't help me.

My post on the index of ships built at Woolwich may help.

One of my ancestors, George Farrant Penney, after transferring to Chatham Dockyard from Sheerness, became the Foreman of Shipwrights there and lived at Ordnance Terrace in Chatham. I will try to check with his children`s children, they may have some old records, etc.
The solution to every problem is a.) time , or  b.) another problem.

As far as the actual slips and docks in which vessels were built is concerned, I have found in many of the avenues of research I have used, references to particular ships being built in or on certain locations. If each of us downloaded Bilgerats list we could append to it the locations we discover in old books, newspapers etc. and possibly end up with a record of building locations for many of Chatham's ships.

In the Museum, there was a list of vessels built on No7 slip. I'm afraid it was one of the exhibits placed in storage when the museum was 'shrunk'. If you contact Alex Patterson at the Historic Dockyard, he may let you have sight of it.
Thanks Bilgerat. They did mention this at the Museum but they didn't seem to know where to find it now. I'll ask again next time I'm there.

I like the layout, much, much better than mine, very clear. I had my list from a very senior foreman in Chatham Dockyard. I think it was on a very large photo ?

Here's an index of Chatham built ships. It doesn't include submarines, as they're indexed elsewhere. I've put in links to articles on the forum, as you can see, there are a lot of gaps. Many thanks to CDP for allowing me to build on the sterling work he's already done on this subject. As and where further articles are written on Chatham built ships, I'll put links to them on this thread. This way, they won't get 'lost in the crowd'. Can the boss-lady or anyone with similar super-powers make this a sticky?
