All the crew agreements for the ships on which your father served should be
held at the Registrar of Shipping and Seamen at
General Register and Record Office of Shippjng and Seamen
St Agnes Road
Cardiff CF4 4YA
They can take months to reply and won't allow outside researchers in.
However, I would guess that your father's ships would have been involved in
convoys during the war, in which case there could be considerable
information about him held in records at the Public Record Office in Kew.
These often yield a substantial amount of hitherto unknown information and
you would perhaps find them well worth a search. There is a card index at
Kew which will allow you to check whether or not any of his ships are
mentioned within Admiralty classes ie convoy records.
Do get back to me if you wish to know more!
