Were these people part of the crew on Shackleton's last voyage or just stationed in South Georgia?
It appears that they were workers based in South Georgia

In the first few months I was at the Lerwick Central I lodged with them before going to stay with my aunt at Scalloway.
Oddly enough I never heard him mentioned it. They milked about a dozen cows, and son Alastair used to run in to Lerwick every morning with the milk.

I think the pallbearer Magnus Leask's lineage is here, and I think the James Leask pallbearer is his brother. The pallbearer Magnus is buried in Gulberwick so it would look likely.
Would that be the same Magnie Leask that had the croft at South Setter Gulberwick.
