Mv Hannington court 2

Hi, I am desparatly trying to get info about the Hannington court 2 Iknow it was lost off the coast of cape horn in 1941 with the loss of 2 lives. My grandfather was one of those lost. I have tried to find out the ships register number so i can find a crew list but have had no luck so far. My mother was a new born when his ship went down so she has very little knowledge about her father and we would love to fill in the gaps! Can you help?? Thankyou
