Fate

Surrendered at Dundee, Scotland on 14 May 1945.

Post war information (see more post-war boats):
Became the British submarine N 35. Transferred to France in 1946. Sank 6 Dec 1946 at Toulon in an accident. Many sources claim she was raised and broken up but the French never raise warships sunk with loss of life as they are regarded as military graves.

Men lost from U-boats

Unlike many other U-boats, which during their service lost men due to accidents and various other causes, U-2326 did not suffer any casualties (we know of) until the time of her loss.
