with reference to Ivy Catherine Medland or Cracknell and John McAuley
I am searching for details of my mother's parents who served on Union Castle Line ships in the late 1930's. My Grandfather, John McAuley fell off a gang-plank in Liverpool docks whilst boarding his ship in 1939 and died in a hospital in Liverpool.
I wonder if you could advise me how I could discover further information about them. They were steward and stewardess and I believe were on a ship which sailed to the Cape of Good Hope in 1937.
i would be grateful for any assistance you could give me as I am trying to assist my mother in a search for her half-brothers and sister.
