Not listed anywhere (CWGC included) save on the memorial erected at Whitby, Yorkshire, in 1917, by the British India Steam Navigation Company, in commemoration of all those who lost their lives in the tragedy.

Information and additional links:- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_Rohilla

The Glasgow Herald, Tuesday, 30th October, 1917.
"In Memoriam.
TARBET.-
In fondest remembrance of our darling boy, Matthew, who was lost by the wreck of the hospital ship Rohilla at Whitby, on the 30th October, 1914, aged 19 years.
He saw a new Heaven, and a new earth
And there was no more sea.
-Inserted by his Father and Mother, Ardtalla (looks like), Colintraive, Kyles of Bute."

The verse in the Herald's intimation is based on the inscription at the base of the Whitby Memorial:-
