Transcript of TITANIC CREW LIST - ... Some of the crew's names are spelt differently in the various sources,...

  • THE CREW OF THE TITANIC: AN ALPHABETICAL LIST Revised January 2020 This list records, as far as possible, all crew who signed on to the Titanic or served aboard her. This includes crew who only served on the delivery voyage from Belfast to Southampton, crew who signed-on at Southampton but did not sail or complete the voyage, and crew who joined in place of others (eg Bill Edmunds, Solomon Williams.) It also includes the Harland and Wolff guarantee group, the musicians and the Sea Post staff, who appear on the passenger lists but had a job to do on board. It also includes the names of some "imposters": men who claimed to be survivors but who do not appear by name on the Crew Agreement. It is possible that some of these men gave false names when signing-on. SOURCES The primary source used for the crew’s names, ages, addresses etc. is the Crew Agreement, drawn up in the Union Offices by harried clerks faced with unfamiliar accents and semi-literate men. Information was taken at face value. Older men said they were younger, and younger men said they were older. Places of birth may be vague, addresses misheard or misunderstood. Several men signed-on under false names, details of which were only revealed as families came forward after the disaster to claim compensation. The information from the Crew Agreement has been corrected from other records: from the Death Notices in the local papers which may give a more accurate age, and show where the families were living immediately after the disaster; from the Casualty and Discharge lists, which incorporate notes confirming forms of names; from the 1911 census. We have also referred to "The crew of the RMS Titanic : who were they?," by Brian J. Ticehurst, compiled for the Southampton Maritime Museum. (Southampton City Council, 2006 ISBN 9780954394196), which is the result of many years' research, especially into the Titanic Relief Fund records. NAMES Some of the crew's names are spelt differently in the various sources, especially Italian and French staff of the A la Carte Restaurant. Early published lists, such as the list by address in the Southampton Times, 20 April 1912, have misprints and mishearings of names. We have provided a "see reference" to what we believe to be the correct form of the name where this is the case. We have also provided "see references" from false names (even where these are the names on the Crew Agreement) to real names.
