The ‘Hartburn’ was travelling from Manchester for St Helens Roads with a cargo of Hay and railway trucks when she struck a mine laid by UC-62. She was lost in the same area as the ‘Hazelwood’ which went down three days later. Which wreck is the ‘Hartburn’ is yet to be proved. However a clinometer made by Alder of Blyth was found. With the vessel being built in Blyth and carrying railway trucks, this is almost certainly the ’Hartburn’.

The wreck lies mostly upright, with the bow lying to starboard. She is badly broken forward of the boilers. From the surface she appears to be in two parts.
