This CD contains all 22 pages of the original document, and lists the names of several thousand people who died on voyages to South Australia.

An emigrants journey was not easy. Apart from leaving family and friends, it meant months at sea, and conditions on board were not always welcoming. But our emigrant ancestors endured the trip and made a new life for themselves throughout the Australian colonies. Through any number of illnesses, accidents or other ailments sadly not everyone made the entire journey.

 This CD is a facsimile of the "return showing deaths occurring on board emigrant ships to South Australia from 1849 to 5 June 1865" which was published in the 'South Australian Government Gazette' of 26 January 1866. Each entry gives:

  • Ship
  • Name
  • Age
  • Cause of Death
  • Where buried

Example Entries:
Neptune    McInnes, Marion            38        June 13 1853        Diarrhoea                    Sea
Neptune    Raydon, William             infant    June 26 1853        Measles & diarrhoea   Sea
Neptune    Edmonds, Emma            24        Aug 7 1853           Suicide                        Sea
Neptune    Snells, -                         1           Oct 2 1853           Found dead in bed       Sea

This is a useful record for those looking for a 'lost' a family member, as death on the voyage out is always a possibility.
