U.K. Merchant Navy Seamen Records​
Hi fellow members,
I am wondering if anyone can tell me how to access UK Merchant Navy Records for 1845-1854?
I have found evidence that an ancestor was in the Merchant Navy, and I want to trace his movements whilst he was a seaman.
Name. George Nurthen
Event Type. Military Service
Event year range. 1845-1854
Event Place. United Kingdom
Birthplace. Middlesex.
I haven't any Service numbers to add.
Thank You in anticipation, Joan.

You can see some on FMP

Ticket No. 601885 Nurthen Geo S'Lukes (?St Lukes)
Ticket No. 524582 Nurthen Geo S'Lukes
That's all.....
Suggest you read the research guide for Merchant Navy on The National Archives website.
