Stuart Prince 1942-Chief Officer

I am searching for information on behalf of my Sister in Law.
Her Father was Chief Officer of the Stuart Prince when he died in 1942. His discharge book simply states "Engagement Cancelled".
Does anyone know were the Furness Withy records are kept?

I can't really help with regard to any surviving shore side records for Furness Withy but I can tell you that there appears to be no mention of any death at sea in that year for the ship. If he died ashore while still a crew member then their may be a note in the narrative section of the ship's official logbook as to the circumstances of his death. The logbook for 1942 is held at Kew under the ship's official number 168022 in piece BT 381/2165. Hope that helps.

Thank you Hugh, this might prove interesting because my Sister in Law was told her Father died at sea of pneumonia. Maybe there is a mystery to be solved.
Thanks again
