28th September 1853

Hello everybody

Just found this site, I am researching a maritime disaster that happened on this date in 1853. Its throwing up a lot of puzzles. Today is the anniversary of the disaster.
I need to find out if the crew list exists , I can't go to the national archives so the only option seems to be paying a researcher at the national archives or joining yet another of the paid for sites, I have already had to join three. Wondering if anybody can look it up for me. Once I find it exists I am quite happy to pay to see it. Ship was the Annie Jane she left Liverpool initially on the 24th of August 1853 the details are here. http://www.anniejane.net/

I am puzzled by one of the Stewards at the inquest describing the crew he says there were four carpenters James Boyd, Belfast (without wages) James Marshall, Sunderland (without wages) Uhalt Gagon, Canada (without wages) and Edward Durrant, Canada (without wages) WHY!! would people work and spend a month on a ship without wages???
Anybody know what does that mean?

Thanks for reading
