Crew List between 1st March 1904 and 30th September 1904

Index of Crew Listings

The crew list has finally outgrown a single post! In future, I will use this thread to contain the complete crew listings. For monthly listings, and listings for other time periods, see the link above for an index.

The list is split into three categories: Officers, Visitors and Scientific Staff, and Crewmembers.

The symbol -M in the "Joined" column indicates that a crewmember's enlistment date is not known, and instead that the date given is the first Mention of the crewmember on board the ship.

It is sometimes difficult to determine whether Asian names are recorded in the Asian (surname/forename) or Western (forename/surname) style. Where this is ambiguous, the name is entered verbatim, using the Surname column only.

Please leave any replies in the Albatross (1900) Crew Lists topic
