    Both have known graves at Port Aux Basques (St. James) Cemetery, Newfoundland. Harold Taverner is buried with both his father Benjamin (Master of the Caribou) & his brother Stanley (Chief Officer of the Caribou). Harold's rank as Chief Officer is in error & should be listed as 2nd Officer. Have asked for an amendment to this end.
