Information listed on the passenger lists may include: name of passenger, their birth date or age, port of departure, port of arrival, date of arrival, and vessel name."

Database Of 18 Million UK-Bound Passengers Made Available Online - 24 Hour Museum - official guide to UK museums, galleries, exhibitions and heritage: "Genealogists and family history enthusiasts can research a passenger’s name, age, occupation, port of departure, origin and intended address in the UK via the website.

Josh Hanna, Senior Vice President of Ancestry International, said: “These records are a vital resource for anyone tracing their family’s movements to the UK from around the world and collectively reflect a period of huge economic and social change for Britain and its colonies during the twilight days of the British Empire.”"
