Lady Ismay was launched on 1 June 1911 with small engines and paddle wheels for economy purposes. She was popular during her brief life and could carry over 1000 passengers. She was called up at the outset of the Great War and converted at Bristol for minesweeping purposes. Whilst sweeping off Harwich on 21 December 1915 she struck a mine and sunk within a minute.
