Service

The ship completed to full complement at Devonport on 18 June, 1907.[9]

In 1908-10, at least, she was in the Second Cruiser Squadron.[10]

In mid-1913, she was flagship to the Rear-Admiral in the Home Fleets, out of Devonport.[11] During this time, it was decided to purchase a Type 9 Cruiser Auxiliary set for her.[12]

Captain William Bowden-Smith grounded her on Lichfield Shoal in June 1917. He was subjected to a Court of Enquiry on 9 June which determined he had committed an error in judgment by placing undue confidence in the navigating officer.[13]

Carnarvon was re-commissioned on 16 April, 1919.[14]
