There is apparently a Stone of Remembrance at Kirkmaiden Churchyard, Drummore which reads:

IN/ MEMORY OF/ OUR GALLANT MERCHANT SEAMAN/ OF THE STEAMERS/ "MAIN" AND "RIO VERDE"/ WHO LOST THEIR LIVES BY ENEMY ACTION/ IN LUCE BAY AND AT GRUMMAG HEAD/ 1917/ ERECTED BY SUBSCRIPTION/ FROM VISITORS/ BOARDING THE SALVED STEAMER "MAIN"/ WHILE AT DRUMMORE, AUGUST 1920.

This is WMR/UKNIWM memorial 69515 and is described as
Stone of remembrance with sloped head. Carved cross featured within stone. Lettering raised in black

No photograph is currently available.
