Attempts were made to back her off, then float her free by throwing cargo overboard, but by next flood tide she had canted over and filled. At dawn the entire ship’s complement landed safely on a small section of the reef which remained above high water, and over the next few days the three boats which remained intact were used to land stores from the wreck Meanwhile, Captain Swanson, the mate and seven seamen had left in one of the boats to obtain assistance at Pernambuco. They were picked up by the American ship Hayara and dropped near Pernambuco where they obtained help from the British Consul. On 17 October the Royal Mail Packet steamer Oneida sighted the castaways, took them on board and landed at Southampton about three weeks later.

The 'Grosvenor' East-Indiaman was wrecked on the Pondoland coast of South Africa, 4 August 1782. Of a crew of 132 and 18 passengers (twelve adults and six children), 123 survivors reached shore, but only 18 reached Cape Town, the remainder dying en route, or killed or captured by Bantu tribesmen. Alexander Dalrymple published 'An Account of the Loss of the Grosvenor Indiaman' in 1783. The site of the wreck briefly became Port Grosvenor, built with the intention of salvaging the Grosvenor's cargo, valued at £75,000. However the Cape Government declared the port illegal, so it only operated in 1885 & 1886. Probably after the oil painting in the National Maritime Museum attributed to George Carter.
