About Builders
 Pile, Spence & Co., West Hartlepool (Sunderland)
PILE, SPENCE & COMPANY (1859 - 1865) then PILE, SPENCE & COMPANY LTD. (1865 - 1866)
Pile, Spence & Co was a partnership between John Pile and Joseph Spence. Both were already successful shipbuilders. They had two shipyards at West Hartlepool. The first was in Jackson Dock, and was known as the North Yard. The other, the South Yard, was in Swainson Dock. By 1861 they employed around 1500 workmen. Around this time they took over the West Hartlepool Steam Navigation Co, which had a fleet of nine cargo and passenger vessels. Although the business was successful, the partnership ended in 1866. The bank which the firm used went out of business, so all their money was lost. The last ship to be launched was the Murton.
