Looks a possible for me to check as it is after the marriage 7/2/67 in Madras and before Alfred Henry born 1868 in Trinulgherry. No indication she came to England so need to check her death if it was in India or if she was on board the ship.

Im wondering since Victoria was born at sea in 1874 and then her and her sister are noted as orphans in 1881 that leaves a death for her mother between Oct 1874 and 1881 census which i can't find a death in the UK for her which makes me think Catherine may have died at sea.
Were the 2 girls the only kids of their's who went to the UK? Did your Alfred stay in India or did he go the to UK as well?
Alfred was in the UK and I have his marriage 3/11/1890 where Father given as deceased.

Alfred definitely came to England as I have his Marriage Cert and he is in my direct line.
 
Something to ponder..

Forces War Records has 5x entries for a Robert Gillingham [service no 75] between 1861-1868 which may be Robert. All variants of Sergeant. Son, Alfred's marriage has his father as a colour sergeant [dec].

EDIT: I don't have a full subscription.
Cancelling my subscription as even their researcher are unable to find records for Colour Sergeant Roberts Gillingham

The India Office Records are a very large collection of documents relating to the administration of India from 1600 to 1947, the period spanning Company and British rule in India. The archive is held in London by the British Library and is publicly accessible. It is complemented further by the India Papers collection at the National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh.

The records come from four main sources: the English and later British East India Company (1600–1858), the Board of Control (1784–1858), the India Office (1858–1947), and the Burma Office (1937–48). The collection also includes records from many smaller related institutions. Overall, the collection is made up of approximately 175,000 items, including official publications and records, manuscripts, photographs, printed maps and private papers. These items take up approximately nine miles of shelving units.
Will definitely be going back there and National Archive when Covid has gone away
 
Sometimes no matter how hard you look no records can be found, sadly not all records survived which makes searching even harder and we never find the answers we are looking for.
