Employment details for my relative


Hi
Is there anywhere (online or otherwise) where I could find anything relating to my relative, Richard William Pugh, who worked as a steward on the White Star Line sometime between mid 1920's and late 1950's.
Thanks
Dave

Hi,

What are you trying to find out about him and do you know what ship he worked on?

sometime between mid 1920's and late 1950's


The White Star Line merged with the Cunard Line in 1934 and they become known as Cunard White Star. By the end of 1936 there were only 2 White Star ships regularly being used (Britannic and Georgic) and by 1950 the remainder of White Star had been bought by Cunard and the company was named Cunard.

Hi
Thanks for the reply. I not looking for any one thing in particular just trying to build up a picture of his life so any info would be helpful like any names of ships he served on. I know it's a long shot but I thought I'd ask anyway.
Thanks
Dave

There is not much left of the White Star records to be of much help to you.

Have you tried a family history or genealogy website? I have never tried them but a lot of people say they are good.

If you look in the right place (I don’t know where) you might be able to find his name on a surviving crew list or document.

Do you have any idea of what ship he might have worked on or where the ship sailed to?
