A British cargo steamship of 1520 tons. She sank off Sunderland on 24th October 1902 enroute from London to Blyth. In ballast (Collings). The Spokes and NMR database provide two explanations for the sinking – a collision and foundered. Two sizes are also provided (perhaps feet and metres?) 260 x 34 x 18 and 79.37m x 10.36m x 5.66m. The Eident sunk 24th October 1902. Spokes gives location as 54 51N; 01 09W (insufficient information to convert to grid ref).
