In 1922 my great aunt, her 2 sisters & their mother emigrated to Australia on the TSS Balranald, leaving Tilbury for Sydney.
Does anyone have any information on this vessel (Shipping Line, type of vessel, photo if possible, etc.).
Anything gratefully received.
Many thanks in advance.

Bruce,
Thanks for that - it never crossed my mind to look there. Just what I wanted, photo & all. Many thanks.
Kind regards,
John.

Hello John
My father emigrated to South Africa in 1925 on the Balranald. Do you have any information on that ship that you could share with me?
