Harriet Barrington killed on the Athenia

November 05, 2009

I see on your website mention is made by a Miss Perkins that a document or certificate can be acquired if you have a relative listed as killed on the Athenia.

My grandmother, Harriet Barrington was among those killed.

My uncle ( Roy Barrington, aged 8 yrs) was rescued.

Could you please provide me with some infomation on this

Thank you Grahame Parker
