Hi there and welcome to Rootschat  :)
I'm guessing that your grandmother was a single lady when she emigrated to Australia?  I can't see a birth for her under the surname Yates in England.  I'm wondering if perhaps she was Irish?  Any idea of her parents' names?  Dazey

Have you got her maiden name? There is nothing in the out going passenger lists for Florence Yates.
VEDIC (White Star Line) did make several voyages to Australia in 1928.

Hi Guys,
Thanks so much for your help. Florence was single. For some reason she lied about her age for many years.She married in Sydney, Australia & even her husband thought she was younger. She was born in Poplar, England. Although Barking & Hornchurch were only ever mentioned. Her home address was 57 Garford street, Barking. She had an older sister Emma & brother Joe who was younger. Emma never married. Joe married Sarah & they had a daughter Josephine Patricia, who had 3 children & was divorced. I think the ship stopped in Perth. She arrived in Sydney 28 Nov, 1928. I think it stopped in Fremantle 14 Nov, 1928. There was a lot of secrecy about her past & I think something terrible happened prior to her departure which made her leave the UK. Wish I knew more.
Regards.
