Officers and Men Killed in Action or Died of Wounds,
H.M.S. Malaya, Battle of Jutland,  31st May -1st June 1916.

  Extract from the Official History; " Naval Operations" by Sir Julian S. Corbett. 1923

...........The Barham had hardly turned before she was badly hit by a heavy shell which caused many casualties and wrecked her wireless gear. Those of the enemy ships that were within range seemed to be concentrating on the turning point, but the Valiant, her next astern, got round without being touched. The Warspite was no less fortunate, and as Malaya, the rear ship, turned it was evident that she was the target of a whole division or more. Salvoes were falling all round her at the rate of six a minute. By hauling out to port, however, she escaped, but for the next twenty minutes she was constantly straddled, and was twice so badly hit below the water line that she began to list. It was then decided to open fire short with the 6-inch starboard battery in order to set up a screen, but before the order was passed another heavy shell burst inside it, devastating guns and crew and starting a fire amidst the havoc it had wrought........


our notes.
Those that died after the 31st are identified by inclusion of the date of death.
The Malaya's four civilian casualties are mentioned on the civilian list. We now have listed on these pages (with the civilian casualties) a total of 65. The official history records 63.  possibly the discrepancy is: Ordinary Seaman Edward ARDA, (03/06/1916) HMS Victory, and Officer's Steward Alfred COOPER (03/06/1916) HMS Victory - Inspection of their service papers does indeed show transfer to HMS Victory shore establishment on the same day they are discharged dead , died of wounds- wounds received on 31st May 1916 onboard Malaya. ( Papers: Arda  Cooper )
