Hi, as an archaeologist I often use this useful website for details and locations of wreck sites. HMS Hilary has an entry - the wreck is located west of the Shetlands having being torpedoed by a German U-boat (U-88) on 25 May 1917. 4 people were lost as a result.

Here is the link:

Hope this is helpful for further background information.
