In June 1906, Hogue served in the 4th Cruiser Squadron on the North America & West Indies Station under the command of Captain Arthur Y. Moggridge.
Shortly after the outbreak of the First World War in August 1914, Hogue was assigned to the 7th Cruiser Squadron, tasked with patrolling the Broad Fourteens of the North Sea, in support of a force of destroyers and submarines based at Harwich which blocked the Eastern end of the Channel from German warships attempting to attack the supply route between England and France.
Hogue was sunk in action on 22 September 1914. At 07:00, about 30 minutes after the action commenced, Hogue was struck by two torpedoes from U-9 as she attempted to rescue survivors from her sister ship, Aboukir. She sank within 15 minutes.
In 1954 the British government sold the salvage rights to the ship and salvage is ongoing.
