If you look at a map of Europe, you'll see that it's unlikely they sailed from Gdynia to England: they would have had to sail north, pass through the strait separating Denmark from Sweden, then sail south to England. Most emigrants traveled across Poland tp Germany and then sailed from German ports, especially Hamburg, but also Bremen; some went on to France or the Low Countries and sailed from there. Most of the passenger lists from Hamburg are available online, I believe, so you can search those.

Good luck.
