The Round Table class was a small class of trawlers built for the British Royal Navy in 1941/2.[1] The class were built by two Aberdeen shipbuilding firms Hall, Russell & Company and J. Lewis & Sons Ltd.[2]

All were built to a 1936 design, the Star of Orkney,[3] by Hall, Russell & Co but were commissioned as minesweepers.[4] Two of the class, Sir Galahad and Sir Lancelot were converted to danlayers.[1]
