Merchant navy records


Active member
I hope I am in the right place on the forum for this request.

Peter Malone born Birkenhead Cheshire, 01/03/1893.
Married Ellen Burke, Birkenhead 07/12/1917.
Died, Birkenhead 24/05/1946.

I have hit a brick wall searching for his Merchant navy records.

I have his Royal navy records, he enlisted on the 02/12/1911 and trained as a stoker. And I have the list of the ships he served on, he was invalided out on the 02/11/1916, with heart problems.

His marriage certificate in 1917 states he was a stoker in the merchant service.
I have a voyage card from "findmypast" for the merchant navy dated, 04/09/1937, for the ship he sailed on "Natia"

Q. How can I find his merchant navy records for any other ships he may have served on, and did he serve in W.W.11.

Q Is it possible to see the log of the ships in W.W 1.

Thanks for any help
