She had one deck, four bulkheads and water ballast. The Emma stranded on the Knavestone rocks on Wednesday, 9 December 1914 while transporting wood pulp and pig iron from the port of Sundsvall in Sweden to Manchester. Her crew of 20 lowered the boat and three men got into it, but before any more could join them, the boat broke adrift in the heavy seas and quickly floated away. Meanwhile the North Sunderland lifeboat Forster Fawsett had been launched at 2345 hrs and set out for the Knavestone. The remaining 17 crewmen were rescued from the stricken steamer and taken back to Seahouses. At 0830 hrs the following morning, the ship’s boat was spotted at sea, so the lifeboat was immediately launched again and rescued the three men in it. The Emma, though, drifted unseen off the Knavestone and during the next few days was blown away in the very heavy weather and disappeared. The author believes that this wreck is almost certainly that of the Emma. It is orientated in a SSE to NNW (145°/326°) direction and lies on a seabed of mud, sand, shell and gravel in a general depth of 61 m (LAT). The wreck is upright, broken and collapsed and now festooned in nets.
