Looking for info on a minor sailing alone from Poland to Uk

Looking for info on a minor sailing alone from Poland to Uk

Could someone please point me in the right direction please. I'm looking for information of a minor arriving in the Uk from Poland somewhere between 1900 and1910. She was my great grandmother being sent to her aunt in the UK. I'm guessing to escape the pogroms going on in Jewish Poland.

Thank you.

Hello, I have been doing the same for my grandfather who came to the USA at age 12,by himself from Poland.It is painstaking and time consuming to find even tidbits of info.I was finally able to find documents that he filed when he became an adult,seeking naturalization.Not sure about the UK,but in the US minors were not allowed to apply for citizenship.They had to be at least 18 years old.
You may be better off looking for records from later in her life,and then back track to immigration.Good luck to you.
