Hello Researching family history, my great uncle Master Mariner, Captain George Jarvis on the SS Duquesa died in Montevideo on 13.10.1924, aged 52 and is buried in the British Cemetery there. The informant on death certificate was Thomas Lewis, Clerk, Messrs. Houlder Bros. & Co. Ltd. Agents, Montevideo. Wondering if there is any other information I can come across. Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

Hello,
I guess you have the information from GRO Consular Deaths Indices

First name(s) GEORGE
Last name JARVIS
Age 52
Gender Male
Birth year 1869
Death year 1921-25
Place MONTEVIDEO
Country URUGUAY
Record source GRO Consular Death Indices (1849 to 1965)
Year range 1921-1925
Volume 18
Page 392
Record set British nationals died overseas 1818-2005
Category Birth, Marriage, Death & Parish Records
Subcategory Deaths & burials
Collections from Great Britain

Other places that may have information.
The Logbook and Crew Agreement of DUQUESA (official number 140578) which should give you information on the cause of his demise together with other personal details.
As far as I am aware DUQUESA docked in London on 01/01/1925 so her First Logbook and crew agreement for 1925 should give you the details. These are available from NMM Greenwich.

You should also look in Lloyds Captains Register available from London Metropolitan Archives. These should contain details of His seagoing career as Master and Mate.

The same Captain George Jarvis was my great-uncle too. The SS Duquesna was his last ship but he had previous commands with the Houlder Line (incorporated into Furness Withy/British & Argentine Line). All were refrigerated freighters carrying meat from South America. During WW1 the SS La Negra and SS La Blanca were both torpedoed in the English Channel, within three months of one another. It is said in my branch of the family that he died in Montevideo of blood poisoning that started from a boil in his neck. I have a photograph of him somewhere but can't find it at the moment, sorry.

El mismo capitán George Jarvis también era mi tío abuelo. El SS Duquesna fue su último barco, pero tenía comandos previos con la Houlder Line (incorporada en Furness Withy / British & Argentine Line). Todos eran cargueros refrigerados que transportaban carne de América del Sur. Durante la Primera Guerra Mundial, el SS La Negra y el SS La Blanca fueron torpedeados en el Canal de la Mancha, con tres meses de diferencia. En mi rama de la familia se dice que murió en Montevideo de un envenenamiento de la sangre que comenzó con un furúnculo en el cuello. Tengo una fotografía de él en alguna parte, pero no puedo encontrarla en este momento, lo siento.
