Sunk 15 Aug, 1944 in the English Channel north-west of Le Havre, in position 50.20.84N, 00.34.68W, by depth charges from the British corvette HMS Orchis. 48 dead and 1 survivor.

Although the vessel was beached, she later broke in two and was declared a total loss.[2] Convoy escorts counter-attacked; the corvette HMS Orchis is credited with the destruction of U-741. Orchis rescued one survivor.[1]

The wreck was identified by marine archaeologist Innes McCartney near the position given by the Allies in 2000.
