Deaths of passengers are noted in the ships manifest (passenger list)

Sometimes the death is noted beside the name - with a date and sometimes a cause.

Sometimes the deaths are all recorded at the end of the passenger list.

To find a death, you need to get the passenger list and go through it carefully.

See http://www.rootsweb.com/~ote/ships/ and scroll down to the link to "Abby Land 20 Dec. 1850 Liverpool to New York "

You can look at the images online and see how the deaths were recorded on that voyage, as an example.
