-H.M.S. Hood Crew Information-
H.M.S. Hood Crew List
Updated 17-Apr-2010

It is estimated that as many as 9,000 men served aboard the "Mighty Hood" during the operational portion of her 21 year career. Unfortunately, there is no surviving official single listing of ALL men who served in her. Here you will find our attempt at creating such a listing. We are using the few, fragmentary crew lists known to exist, Navy Lists, various official reports, public records, and most importantly of all, inputs from the families of former crew.

Biographical Information: A career naval man, my grandfather joined the navy in 1915 at the age of 14 as a stoker. He was never able to afford a commision and so rose through the non commisioned ranks to a position of Chief Petty Officer. He served on the Hood prior to its sinking, I believe that one of the survivors was the best man at his wedding in approx 1932 so he may have served on the ship for some time.
