MV Empire MacKendrick was built at William Denny and Brothers Dumbarton Scotland under order from the Ministry of War Transport. As a MAC ship, only her air crew and the necessary maintenance staff were naval personnel  and she was operated by Hain SS Co, St.Ives.
After the war, the ship was converted to a grain carrier, and eventually scrapped in China in 1970.
