Snowdon Range - a general history

Yorkshire Post and Leeds Intelligencer 24th Dec. 1912
THE MISSING STEAMER SNOWDON RANGE. Hopes of receiving any news of the West Hartlepool steamer Range, which for some weeks past has been in the list of overdue vessels, are gradually becoming weaker. Our London Shipping Correspondent, writing last night says, The Snowdon Range, which left Philadelphia on November 22 for Leith, has not been heard she was spoken on November 28 in Mid-Atlantic, and the hopeless premium of 92gs. per cent, is being paid to reinsure her.
The Snowdon Range, which belongs the Neptune Navigation (Limited), West Hartlepool, is of 3.060 tons gross register, and carries about 30 hands, a list of whom we published few days ago. There is too much reason to fear that she was a victim of the hurricane in the North Atlantic at the end of last month.
