Thanks for the link Helen,

This page has changed addresses several times over the years and I lost 
track of it.  It helps people understand how their relatives arrived in 
England, but unfortunately no passenger lists seem to be available  for 
ships departing the "northern European ports". My Grandfather came to 
Canada in 1907 and I could only summarize, from the transmigration 
article, his journey as to how he arrived in Liverpool from Volhynia :

The British conducted a major business transporting immigrants from 
northern European ports by ship to Hull, England where they traveled by 
train to Liverpool and thence onward by ship to the US, Canada and other 
parts of the world. By 1907, migration via the UK was a fully integrated 
business that was cheap, effective and profitable for the organizations 
involved, with Hull dominating as the chief port of entry and Liverpool 
serving as the main port of departure.
