I have a "Certified Copy of an Entry in the Marine Register"
issued by the General Register Office for my relative who fell from the Gallant yardarm and hit the hatch and died instantly in 1884 while at sea. But he was not actually registered until the ship came back to England next year! The Peter Stuart(ship) I got details on it from "Lloyds Register:British and Foreign Shipping". It tells about all the physical facts about the ship. Precisely though, I had some paid genealogist look in BT 157/15 Register of Seaman's Deaths July- Dec. 1884. And BT 155/9 Names of Ships 1883-86. Index BT 153 Registers of wages and effects of Deceased Seamen 1852-1889. Good luck, Roy Grundy
