At first, a keeper from the nearby Cape Willoughby Lightstation was was sent down to check the Cape St Albans Light, then from 1912 onwards a local resident from Antechamber Bay visited to check the light once a day.

After the upgrade to acetylene gas in 1914, the light no longer needed to be regularly checked.
