- Time-of-day versus "action" may vary, as some ships received their deadly damage during one action but limped through to a later time or even a later action.
- The majority of British loss of life came from Vice-Admiral Sir David Beatty's battlecruiser force, which lost Queen Mary and Indefatigable in the opening minutes, and Invincible two hours later, with a total of 3,309 lives lost.
