Might want to look into Navweaps.com articles on such things, table of penetration is a worthwhile comparison tool

Not sure, that there is a "general" article/chart summarizing the UK naval armor evolution between 1900s-1930s era
it's up to you to read all the articles around the web, and to do your own analyzes/summary tables

You also have to compare many ship-class books (inside, they often detail the armor of ships)
