Greetings Debbie,

You might like to try this: Poor Jews Temporary Shelter Database

http://www.jewishroots.uct.ac.za/Shelter.aspx

We managed to find what we believe to be the record of our great grandfathers' arrival in the UK from Poland in 1902 including the name of the ship he came on. I say believe because all the details fit except that there was most probably a transcription error from the original handwritten document to the database. His surname was Zmidek but on the database its Lmidek. We are waiting to get access to the original document at the London Metropolitan Archives to confirm the error. Alas, like so many places its closed because of the Covid so we wait patiently.   Good luck with your search.
