Can anyone tell me how the above were dealt with in 1909? Presumably, they are excluded from the usual BMD registers. If this is the case is there another central archive?

Thank you. David

ADMIN NOTE:

It will be easier for someone to help if you'll give the name of your ancestor, date and place of birth, the name of the ship, and the embarkation location and destination.

Good luck!

Surnames: Carlson, carlsson, karlson, karlsson
Magnus Carlson born about 1878 Stockholm, Sweden but married in London, England and living there with a wife and child aged 2 when he died at sea in about 1909. I have various marine discharge certificates relating to his service on board a number of UK vessels including the Phosphor, Abrola and Ashford but regretably have no details of his 'last' journey.

All deaths at sea on British ships had to be recorded in the Captain's log - try google "Deaths at sea British ships" and you will get a lot of links. Good luck.
