Family history

Hi, I was wondering if anyone may be able to help me. Myself and my son are trying to trace our family history. My grandad Haywood Russell Rowe was in the Royal Navy around 1939-1943 (roughly). My family are under the impression that he was on HMS Prince of Wales. But I can't seem to find any proof of this. To be honest, I'm not too sure where I should look.
Ancestry isn't a great deal of help.
From what I have found, I believe he was a 2nd Lieutenant.
I'd be so grateful if anyone could shed some light. Or may know the best place to look.
Many thanks
Lisa and Zak
