The Lloyd’s Register Foundation is an independent global charity with a mission to protect the safety of life and property and to advance public education. It is also the custodian of Lloyd’s Register’s unique heritage collection, which contains over 250 years of maritime history including ship plans, survey reports, Register Books and much more. The collection is an important resource for maritime history, marine engineering, naval architecture, offshore engineering and ocean technology. We are committed to using the collection to create impact in line with our charitable aims.
The Lloyd’s Register Foundation Heritage & Education Centre (HEC), which looks after the collection, is encouraging research that utilises our digital material in different ways. HEC are in the process of making 1.25 million ship plans and survey reports more accessible to the public online and preserving it for future generations. Our website also holds digitised collections of the World Fleet Statistics and Casualty Returns as well as Lists of Surveyors and the Register of Ships.
