The Cumberland and later the Empress were IndustrialTrainingShips run by the Clyde Training Ship Association.

After leaving service she was lent to the Clyde Training Ship Association, however she was burnt down on 1889. After the burning of the first ship the Association acquired a second ship, the Revenge, which was renamed Empress and used until 1923.
