. The Lost Ships of the Royal Navy, 1793-1900, London & New York: Mansell Publishers, .

This volume lists ships in chronological order of their loss. So instead of page numbers, the index indicates the date, in a MM-DD-YYYY format (or sometimes just MM-YYYY or even just YYYY, if little was known of the loss) of the ships loss, and that date will locate the mention of the vessel in the book.
