Dear Alice
Having problems with your e mail address so home you revisit the site.
You can e mail the IWM Documents section direct on docs@IWM.ORG.UK
Regarding ships passenger lists, the Public Records Office have Board of Trade ships passenger lists in a vast file BT 26. Go to their website; locate the PROCAT catalogue and key in top right for example BT 26 /1195. Go up or down from 1195 to find the approx. date you are after and see what is available. I think you should find when Josephine went to Singapore but regarding her evacuation/loss in February 1942 I doubt there are full records. I assume you are quite satisfied that she was lost at sea and didn't make a new life for herself in India, Australia or South Africa. I have copies of the Malayan Research Bureau papers with numerous accounts of the ships that were sunk but it does not list everybody. The PRO at Kew is a very user friendly place to visit - quite an experience.
best wishes
