SS Falaba 1915

Post by darylrodger » Fri Aug 16, 2013 3:06 pm

Hi,

I'm searching for the list of survivors / deceased of the SS Falaba which was torpedoed on 28th Mar 1915.
My great grandfather William Bruce was on the ships passenger list, and was going to Accra in Ghana to work as a foreman mason.

Is it possible he would have a death certificate ? and where would I get one from ?

Can anyone help ?

Regards,

Daryl

Hi Daryl

A quick Google reveals that there is someone else interested in the same subject here:
http://1914-1918.invisionzone.com/forum ... opic=87209

And here is a post which includes a list of missing passengers and crew (from The Times on 31/03/1915).

William Bruce is mentioned there.

Best wishes
Lesley
