Burial13 January 1915 At Sea; He is listed on the Newfoundland Memorial in Beaumont Hamel Park in the Somme, France.1 
Death13 January 1915 At Sea; From Wikepedia: HMS Viknor sank in the Atlantic, off of Tory Island, County Donegal, Ireland, on January 13, 1915, with the loss of the entire ship’s 295-strong crew. It is not known if the ship foundered or strunk a mine. She sent no distress signal. Some wreckage and many corpses washed ashore on the northern coast of Ireland.
It is thought she struck a German naval mine, possibly one of those laid by the German Bremen-class cruiser SMS Berlin. Her wreck was found in 2006, and in 2011 a scuba diver placed a White Ensign on it in memory of her complement.1
