You'll need to contact support about your problems with the software.

The phrase 'Bombay, Madras and Bengal' is called a list appositive. Appositives are usually set off from the rest of the sentence by commas, but with a list, the commas may be confusing. You have used a semicolon at the start, but no punctuation at the end. A better technique is to use the dash to separate the list appositive.  I would also put a comma after 'Madras', but it is optional.  You should use 'of whom' because 'whom' is the object of the preposition.
