Hi from downunder
I was trawling (bad pun)through Google and found your site.Found the info on the Perseus posted in March.
Interesting to have the whole crew listed including husband's grandfather who was Henry T W Ramshaw. I have a transcript of the register of the Perseus built in 1892, if anyone in interested.
How can I get a copy of Henry Ramshaw's qualification (if that is the word)as a chief engineer. He was born in South Shields in 1876

I would try his old company records and British Shipping Federation records. Ships always recorded their crews, so there must be some way to retreive the information. Good luck--keep delving!!! If he was a Chief Engineer--someone holds the record!

Welcome to SN Kiwigirl and enjoy the voyage.
When I saw your title Perseus, I immediately thought she belonged to my old company Blue Funnel line whose ships all carried Greek mythological names. Looking at the date 1892 I can only see one ship beginning with "P" and that is Pyrrhus.
It will be interesting to see your comments and a transcript of the ships registry etc.
Thanks for the wonderful welcome. I was at Kew in 1988 so looked up the Perseus and got a copy of the register. Scrawled acroos the page was the message
"register closed 7th August 1915. vessel blown up by a mine in the North Sea on July 24th 1915.Certificate of Registry lost with vessel. Advice received from owners per form 20 received 9th Aug 1915."

Lots of red tape even in those days!!

How can I download copy onto this site?
