Memories of Devonport, HMS Impregnable 1893

My Great Great Grandfather Frederick George Rivers served and trained on this ship from 1886 to 1887, and trained on another 5 ships in Devonport between 1881 and 1891. Including HMS Duke of Wellington, HMS Rupert and HMS Northampton. He served on his first ship at the age of 16.

My great grandfather, George Jarvis, served on HMS Impregnable in Devonport according to the 1891 census at the age of 16. He went on to become a petty officer in the Navy.

My grandfather started training on this ship. He was in the RN for 19 years. I wish I could find out more about him. All I have is his service record, but no pictures.

My grandfather, Uriah Hazlehurst, served on this ship from 2nd April 1877 until 2nd March 1879 with a short break between 6th to 19th August 1878 when he was with 'R. Adelaide'. He went on to serve in the RN until 4th October 1895 when he was discharged to Plymouth Hospital.
