I have a certificate listing the whole crew of the S.S. Norwood. It was given to my grandmother. My grandfather was the First Officer of the S.S. Norwood. Contact me at jolemar@telus.net if you would like to know if your ancestor was on the S.S. Norwood.

More info on the Norwood from this site:

"SS Norwood, built by Hall, Russell & Co., Aberdeen in 1895 and owned at the time of her loss by Aberdeen, Newcastle & Hull Steam Co. Ltd. Aberdeen, was a British steamer of 798 tons.

On February 11th, 1917, Norwood, on a voyage from Middlesbrough to Aberdeen with general cargo, was sunk by the German submarine UC-29 (Ernst Rosenow), off Aberdeen. 18 persons were lost."
