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
