Travelling on the Sophocles to Australia in 1923

My grandparents emigrated to Australia from England in 1923 with their two young sons. They had great hopes of creating a new life for themselves on a farm in Victoria. They sailed from England on 12 September 1923 on the Sophocles.

Here are some of the passengers on board the ship.

My relatives were on the same ship too! Is it possible to get hi-res pictures of the photos? Any names on the photos? My relatives were traveling with 2 sons and 1 daughter.
