The following is a small piece of research I have located with regards to the Immingham.
 
Served as an Admiralty store carrier, ex-passenger steamer, 2,083/1906, Grimsby-reg, Great Central Railway, hired as accommodation ship 10/14, RFA store carrier from 4/15, Pennant No.Y8.50, described as "errand boy" between Imbros island and Mudros during Gallipoli campaign. In collision with hired screw minesweeper Reindeer 1,101grt, sank off Mudros, Lemnos island. Owners claimed £100,000 compensation but only awarded £45,000 by the Admiralty.
