HMS Nelson (1876)

HMS Nelson (1876)

HMS "Nelson" was a "Nelson" class armoured cruiser of the Royal Navy, built by John Elder & Company, Govan, Scotland and launched in 1876, commissioned in 1881, and sold for scrapping in 1910. She sailed for the Australia Station after commissioning, and served there until 1889. She then commenced a two year refit.

From 1891 until 1894 she was a guardship at Portsmouth, before being placed in reserve. She was converted to a training ship for stokers in 1902 and broken up in Holland after being sold in 1910.
