Technically speaking you are not supposed to carry gas cylinders in a passenger vehicle in the UK, LPG cylinders carried in or on passenger vehicles, unless part of the fuel system for the vehicle engine are dangerous loads and therefore must not be carried

from brittany ferries web site

When travelling in a vehicle, a maximum of three 15kg gas cylinders may be carried. All cylinders should be adequately secured against the movement of the ship and the cylinders must be switched off during the crossing.

no mention of a locker

Allowed by who?   I'm happy to be corrected but I think you should check with the ferry people before transporting gas bottles loose.  Yes, they are OK in motorhomes & caravans but in those cases they are secured in proper gas lockers, etc.
