I've just seen your posting. My husband's family travelled from Bombay to England on the SS Strathnaver on the 3rd November 1961. I have also been looking for a passenger list. Lloyds of London informed me that they stopped archiving them from 1960. On contacting the Natonal Archives they replied with the following information:-
Dear Mrs Kirk,
Passenger lists were not kept or at least were not selected for preservation after 1960. You may wish to look at our Research Guides to records of Immigration and of Naturalisation and Grants of British Nationality: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/catalogue/RdLeaflet.asp?s... http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/catalogue/RdLeaflet.asp?s...
You may find the sites helpful if you are looking for other information on your family.
As your posting is dated 2009, it's possible that you've been lucky and found a P.L. I do hope so. If you have, perhaps you could let me know the source so that I may apply for one also.
Have attached a postage stamp showing the SS Strathnaver.
