Samuel and Sarah Derbyshire , children Leslie and Wilfred , emigrated to Australia in 1911 ( Entry in Family Bible).
Can anyone please help me find the ship/destination?
Also
John and Eliza Watts and daughter Gladys sailed in Aug 1911.
Eliza and Sarah were sisters so they may have gone together.
Thanks
