Robert Barnes Scarrow, Chief Engineer: Voyage Record

This section presents all the information discovered about Robert's voyages during his time in the Merchant Service, which started in 1905 and ended with his death at sea in 1940.

The early voyage data that has been found for Robert Barnes Scarrow has come from the applications for various engineering grades, as by the time that Robert first went to sea (1905) the register of seamen tickets had been abandoned. However, in 1913, a much simpler, though less comprehensive system, the Register of Seaman, Special Index CR10 was started.

Application for Second Class Engineer

Robert was initially employed as a 5th Engineer, for which it would appear that no certification is required. The application for 2nd Engineer grade would have been accompanied by testimonials which are shown below, and this gives a good summary of Robert's early career.

Register of Seaman, Special Index CR10

Introduced in 1913, this card gives very scant information when compared to the registers of the 19th Century. However, it does give a single line of data for each ship Robert sailed on, together with a photograph. The numbers 131,287 and 124,139 are ship's official numbers, and the date beside them is the date of engagement, so the first line shows RB Scarrow was engaged on the steamer Inventor (ON 131287) from December 1918. We have yet to decipher the second line, however in November 1919 we think Robert was still working on SS Inventor. The index was discontinued in 1921.

Register of Seaman, Central Index Numerical Series CR2

In 1921, several new indices replaced CR10, and Robert Barnes Scarrow appears in CR2, which ran until 1941 so the rest of Robert's career is summarised on it. This card gives very similar information to CR10, namely ship's official number followed by engagement date. Some of the information appears to have been added retrospectively.

RB Scarrow CR2 Seaman's Ticket

All three sources discussed so far (Application forms, CR10 and CR2) only give dates of engagement for each ship - there is no actual voyage data. The table below shows a summary of Robert Scarrow's voyages between 1905 and 1940, which have been compiled from CR10 and CR2, together with the shipping movement data contained in Lloyds List which is arranged alphabetically by ship's name on an annual basis. This data is available to view at the Caird Library of the National Maritime Museum.

A few crew lists have also been viewed, and these have come from either the National Archives or the Caird Library. The remaining 80% of crew-lists are held at the Maritime History Archive at St. Johns, Newfoundland.
