I have a few more details (below), and there is a memorial website and survivor's story at [www.memorials.inportsmouth.co.uk]

HMS ISIS Fleet Destroyer. Sunk at night while anchored in the English Channel off Normandy on 20th July 1944 by a mine during operation Neptune (Naval Operations in support of Operation Overload). Casualties were heavy -154 men killed. The wreck is located 49-27N 00-41W seven miles north of Arromanches in northern France. Sinking was caused either by a German mine or possibly a 'Neger' human torpedo. At least one crew member is buried at Arromanches.The ship was on anti-submarine patrol off the Western Sector (Normandy Invasion).
