Head Of Crew

 

Captain Edward John Smith

January 27, 1850 - April 15, 1912

Captain E. J. Smith 

Edward John Smith attended the Etruria British School until the age of 13 when he went to Liverpool to begin a seafaring career. Captain Smith had joined the White Star Line in 1886, and he steadily progressed through the ranks, taking charge of bigger, better and more important vessels.  The list of ships he commanded included, in alphabetic order, Adriatic, Celtic, Coptic, Germanic, Majestic and of course, Olympic, Titanic's older sister ship Olympia

Joseph Bruce Ismay Born   December12,1862     

Son of Thomas Henry Ismay. Thomas Ismay bought the failing White Star Line in 1864.After leaving school Joseph Bruce Ismay began working in his father's office for four years.He then moved to New York for a little while to work at the White Star Line for a year.After the death of his father Bruce Ismay was named head of the business.In July 1907, Ismay and Lord William James Pirrie partner of the ship building firm Harland & Wolff had a discussion over dinner where the plans for Titanic and her sister ships were born. When one of the lifeboats were being lowered around 1:40 PM Chief Officer Wilde called out for more women and children but when none answered the call, Ismay hoped into the boat along with 1st Class passengers. For the rest of his days, Ismay was pilloried and branded a coward.

He was the nephew of Lord Pirrie, partner of Harland & Wolff, builders of the Titanic.After leaving school he went to work as an premium apprentice.Eventually became the managing director of Harland and Wolff, and was put in charge of designing.Andrews made it a point to travel with a team of mechanics on the maiden voyages of the ships he built. Some of those ships include Adriatic, Oceanic, and Olympic. He decided to also sail on the Titanic's so that he could observe her operation and recommend any improvements.

Titanic's Famous Musicians
The seven members shown above (band member Roger Bricoux is missing), are the band members of the Titanic. The members were: (Left to Right):
Fred Clarke of Liverpool
P.C. Taylor of Clapham
G. Krins of Brixton
Wallace H. Hartley of Dewsbury (Bandmaster)
Theodore Brailey of Notting Hill
Jock Hume of Dumfries
J.W. Woodward of Headington, Oxon
All eight of these men died the night of April 15,1912.
They were some of the unsung hero's of Titanic. Instead of fleeing for their lives they stayed and played music to keep the passengers calm.
They will be forever remembered by their acts of courage that fateful night.

Second & Third Class Passengers

 

Lawrence BeesleySecond Class passengers included the British school teacher Lawrence Beesley, who would later write a telling account of the events surrounding Titanic's sinking. Beesley kept attentive mental and written notes during the voyage.

 

 

Eva HartAlso in Second Class were Benjamin and Esther Hart, along with their daughter, Eva. Mrs. Hart however was quite uneasy about having to travel on the Titanic. So strong was her premonition of misfortune that she refused to sleep during the night. Had she been sleeping when Titanic struck an iceberg, she likely would not have noticed the slight bumping it caused on impact.

 

Henry SutehallOne Third Class passenger was Henry Sutehall of Kenmore, New York. He had traveled with a friend across the United States, then to Australia and eventually back to England before finally booking passage on Titanic. He was returning home after a worldwide voyage of nearly two years.

 

Carl JanssonSwedish passenger Carl Jansson was also in Third Class. As he prepared to come up on deck after collision with the iceberg, he noticed that water was sloshing around his feet before eventually reaching his ankles.
