Check out this historical document I found about Florence Barrett

you see them leaving Montreal on July 2, 1939 to visit their parents in England just before the war, they did not intend to stay so long as the war seemed iminent but getting on board a boat got tricky. So they finally got on the Athenia. Now Gertrude's last name is spelled differently there is an H at the end of Cuthbert(h) by accident. The three sisters named Barrett, two married men named Cuthbert.
