|Description: Items such as a ship's propellers were manufactured within the shipyard. The 13,550 ton first-class armoured cruiser 'Black Prince' was launched at the Thames Ironworks on 8 November 1904. She was later sunk under fire from several German battleships at Jutland on 31 May 1916. None of the 790 crew survived.|
