My father Stanley N Cosgrove left London on 7/2/1929 for Freemantle on the vessel Beltana. I am busy tracing my family history and have no idea what happened to him after arriving in Freemantle. Do you have any records with his name please.

I am trying to build my family tree and have found a relative of mine George McDade. Do you have any records of this date/person. Any help you can give me I would be most grateful He sailed on the SS Beltana on 25 June 1925

My great grandfather was a seaman on this ship in,1913. His name was Albert Thornton born 1883 do you have any record s on him and what he was doing in the ship. Regards
