Shipbuilding records

The National Archives of Scotland (NAS) holds records of the Upper Clyde Shipbuilders (UCS) and other shipbuilding companies. Since shortly after the liquidation of UCS in 1971, and as the industry continued to decline and contract in Scotland, records have been acquired by the NAS and other archives from shipyards on the upper and lower Clyde, from the Ayrshire Coast and from the Estuaries of the Forth and Tay. Though the collections include a little 18th century material, the bulk dates from the late 19th and 20th centuries. Apart from the UCS records, which were purchased, the collections have been gifted or deposited by the firms concerned or their liquidators. for more click here
