My grandfather is 84 today. It is my understanding that there was only 9 survivors when the destroyer sunk but after reading some articles there might have been more. Please could you contact me with more information about any survivors.

Message Text: RE: Dunaff Head query.
MORRISON, Able Seaman, WILLIAM, S.S. Dunaff Head. Merchant Navy. 6th November 1944. Buried Freemantle Cemetery. Anglican Lot A.7. Grave 185.
The fact that your Grandfather is officially recognised by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and the name Dunaff Head is inscribed on his headstone suggest he died from injuries related to the sinking of the Dunaff Head in 1941.
Cargo ship Dunaff Head, 5,877grt, (G. Heyn & Sons Ltd-Head Line) had sailed in ballast from Glasgow and joined up with the outward bound 38 ship Convoy OB-293, which departed Liverpool on the 2nd March 1941 and was due to disperse on the 8th March with the ships then to proceed to their individual ports without escort, the final destination for the Dunaff Head being St. John's, New Brunswick. On the 7th March the convoy was attacked by a number of U-boats who proceed to sink two ship and damage a further four. The following day 191 miles South of Iceland in position 60' 38N 18' 50W the Dunaff Head is hit by one of two torpedoes fired from the German U-boat U-A and sinks with the loss of four crew. The survivors number 39 crew and DEMS gunners were picked up by the naval escort destroyer HMS Verity and landed at Loch Ewe
