Thank you for this, Chris. I had known that 2 daughters had died in NZ, but didn't know where or when, so this is a great help. The Tanner family had featured in a Enquiry into sickness in the Plymouth Depot (where families entered prior to boarding ships) in December 1873. (There were subsequently many deaths on the Scimitar when bound for NZ). The Tanner family had cases of Scarletina and others had Measles and other diseases. Three of the Tanners were held back whilst the majority of them sailed on the SS Mongol and the three (my g.g.grandmother Susan Tanner, dau Anne 26, and nephew Walter 17) followed on the James N Fleming joining the main party several months later in NZ.
