Passenger Lists 1937 - 1943





Passengers and Naval Gunners lost 2nd April 1943 are listed on the
'Memorial Page'






The following Passenger List was down loaded from the National Archives, Kew. It contains the names of the passengers and their port of embarkation. This voyage commenced from Malta on the 18th December 1942 after repairs following the epic 'Operation Pedestal' convoy. Captain R MacFarlane, as Master, the route taken, via Suez Canal to Aden, Cape Town, Buenos Aires, Montevideo and then home to Liverpool arriving on the 22nd February 1943.

Also held at the National Archive are some of the Incoming Passenger Lists which I have listed at the bottom of this page and can be downloaded from the National Archive website. The 'Link' to this website is available on my 'Links Page'. The National Archives also holds Outgoing Passenger Lists, however, I have found that Findmypast.com also has a comprehensive archive of  these lists available and is far easier to navigate by using the 'Ships Name' or the 'Passengers Name' covering the period 1890 - 1960, see my Links Page for further details. The cost for each page you download
is appoximately £3.50,  normally a set four pages are available.









The following 'Passenger List' was sent via email from the National Archives and cost £8.50 which appears to be the minimum charge for documents of up to 10 pages?
