Locating a Ship name


Valued Member
Bendigo, Victoria
I am having difficulty reading the occupation (or the ship rather) of a Mr Edwin Charles Smith (the snip taken from his marriage certificate)

I have since discovered Mr Smith as Chief Steward on the Quetta, was drowned when the said ship floundered off the Qld coast in 1890.

What I can read of the cutting is "Office of the Royal ......" (the marriage was in 1877)

I hope someone who is familiar with ships of that era can help.

ps I think the last word is "lady" - pertaining to his wife's occupation - or is it?
