Passengers


By the time of this cruise, Moldavia had berths for 830 passengers - See Crew and Capacity Information on the Benjidog Ship Histories website HERE.

Passengers on cruises were given a booklet with the names of all passengers on board. In the case of Cruise 15 there were 628 named passengers and 5 unnamed children - presumably babies or small infants.

I have included below a facsimile of the passenger list booklet which would probably have been printed on board the ship.

Passenger Names

I have transcribed the passenger list to help anyone searching for relatives who may have been on this cruise as they should be identifiable by search engines which would not be able to make sense of the images of the passenger list itself.

Analysis of Passenger List

An analysis of the titles of passengers recorded on the passenger list is interesting and is shown in the table below:

Title Number
Mr.220
Mrs.127
Miss.253
Master.21
Dr.2
Rev.1
Major.2
Capt.1
Child5

There are a lot more married men than married women, and an exceptionally large number of unmarried women. It is possible that many of the unmarried women were employees of other passengers and looking after their children.

Who Created the Album?

No surnames appear anywhere in the album and the eBay seller I purchased it from was in Orange, Connecticut, USA - approximately 70 miles North-East of New York. I have no idea whether this was a relative of the original owner or a dealer.

I wondered whether it would be possible to work out who compiled the album based on the available information which I have summarised below.

Other considerations in working out who the compilers might be:

Taking all the above into account, and donning my Hercules Poirot moustache, the table below contains all the family groups with boy children and gives my assessment of the likelihood of each family group being the one that created the album.

Family Group Possible Match Comments
Mr. A.E. Angus, Mrs Angus, Master AngusMaybeIt is not clear whether this group consists of two or three generations
Mr G W Bridge, Mrs Bridge, Mr A Bridge, Master BridgeYesCould be a grandfather with his son, daughter-in-law and a grandson
Mr G R L Clark, Mrs Clark, Master ClarkMaybeIt is not clear whether this group consists of two or three generations
Mr G S Clegg, Mrs Clegg, Master CleggMaybeIt is not clear whether this group consists of two or three generations
Mr G G Daniel, Master E B Daniel, Master W J DanielHighly unlikelyNo females in group
Mr C K Deeming, Mrs Deeming, Master Deeming, Miss DeemingHighly unlikelyThere are no photos of a female child in the album
Mr H T Farrar, Master Farrar NoOnly two generations in group
Mr H M Fisk, Mrs Fisk, Dr B Fist, Mr K Fisk, Master T Fisk, Mr G FiskYesCould be a grandfather with his son, daughter-in-law and a grandson
Mr B C Harrap, Master HarrapNoNo females in group
Mr A Hauser, Mrs Hauser, Miss Hauser, Mr C Hauser, Master E Hauser, Master F HauserHighly unlikelyOnly one boy is represented in photos in the album.
Mr J Leese, Mrs Leese, Master Leese, Miss G R Leese, Miss J E Leese, Miss P LeeseNoNo photos of other children in the album
Mr A Mackenzie, Mrs Mackenzie, Master Mackenzie, Miss MackenzieHighly unlikelyNo photos of a female child in album
Mr A Matthews, Mrs Matthews, Master MatthewsPossibleIt is not clear whether this group consists of two or three generations
Mr A Moss, Mrs Moss, Mr Moss, Mrs Moss, Master Moss, Mrs E.M Moss, Master MossHighly unlikelyNo photos of a second boy in the album
Master D Pinto, Master J Pinto, Miss M PintoNoNo photos of a female child in the album
Mr A H Todd, Mrs Todd, Master ToddNoOnly two generations
Mr A Yeardley, Mrs Yeardley, Master Yeardley, Miss YeardleyHighly unlikelyNo photos of a female child in the album

In conclusion, I believe the creator of the album was a grandfather and either Mr. G.W. Bridge or Mr. H.M. Fisk. Of the two, my money would be on Mr Bridge as there is a Mr. A Bridge in his group, and in the 20th Century it was quite common for a son to be given the same name as his father.
