Were Bruce Cutler and to-be-wife Annie Waller were destined to board SS Athenia?
November 26, 2012
I am researching a book on the four-generation Sydney tailoring firm of J H Cutler. Family lore says Bruce Cutler and to-be-wife Annie Waller were destined to board SS Athenia in Liverpool on 2 September 1939 but were late arriving at the Docks and missed boarding. Do you know if a passenger list exists that might contain their names so that I can verify (or other) this story?

Neither Bruce Cutler or Annie Waller appear on any of the lists of survivors for Athenia that I have.
Here is a small list of Australians aboard her.

Thanks for getting back to me, Mack. This question is a little more complicated as the story goes that the couple did not board the ship. Is there an extant list of the original passenger list, as opposed to the survivors?
Not that I know about.
