Successor to the White Diamond Line of sailing packets which failed in 1857, they bought up many of their ships and continued the Liverpool - Boston trade as George Warren's Line of Liverpool and Boston Packets. The company started passenger steamship sailings in 1865 as George Warren & Company. They became the White Diamond SS Company in 1898.
 
About Builders
 Irvine's Shipbuilding & Drydock Co. Ltd., West Hartlepool (Sunderland)
IRVINE, CURRIE & Co. (1864-1866)
R. IRVINE & Co. (1866-1880)
IRVINE & Co. (1881-1898)
IRVINE'S SHIPBUILDING & DRY DOCKS Co. Ltd. (1898-1930)

Mainly repair work was carried out at this Hartlepool yard until 1870. In the early 1880s the yard started building colliers and small tramps. In 1896 Christopher Furness of Furness, Withy and Co. gained control of the yard and it was renamed Irvine's Shipbuilding and Dry Docks. During WWI the yard had a number of orders for various Furness companies. It then made three "Flower" class sloops and six motorised barges along with eight standard "C" type tramps. In 1924 the yard closed due to scarcity of orders.
