Anyone have any idea ...................

Surnames: Towers, Tandy, Gilmour, Elmer, Cooley
I am looking for passengers on the ship " Themosciles" (I hope it's spelt right) which my grandparents travelled on from London to Australia. I am mainly looking for Towers family ancestry (my mothers family) and Gilmour family members (my fathers family).
ANY information will be greatly appreciated 1000 percent

I think the ship you are looking for is the "Themistocles", built in 1911, bought by Shaw, Savill and Albion in 1932 and scrapped in 1947. One of the best places for checking ships' details is theshipslist which also has passenger lists. Hope this helps.
