This final chapter lists every known shipowning business that has operated in Merseyside. As many of these companies swallowed up others, or fragmented into others, some of the histories have proven difficult to trace. This section lists each shipowning business alphabetically, and provides a short, useful introduction of the history of each company listed, in order to make the catalogue as navigable as possible. Examples of listings include (but are by no means limited to):- the African Steamship Co.; Allan Line; Booth Line; Thomas and John Brockleback Ltd.; Canadian Pacific; Cunard Line (the University of Liverpool also hosts a large amount of Cunard archives); Nelson Line; the Royal Mail Steam Packet Co.; and the White Star Line.
