Sussex and the Disaster: Worthing Associations

Brighton Argus

Among the crew of the Titanic was a young man named Crosby a nephew of Mrs. Sole, of Langleigh, Ham-road, Worthing, who was one of the Turkish bath attendants on the liner. Another member of the crew was Mr. A. D. Eagle, a nephew of Mr. E. Best, of Lyndhurst Road, Worthing. The name of neither of them has so far appeared among the list of survivors.

Mrs. Gosling and Mrs. Guy Michell are organising a special matinee performance at Worthing, of Mrs. Gostling's successful play Perkin Warbeck, on behalf of the widows and orphans' fund, Mr. C. A. Seebold having lent the Theatre Royal for the occasion.
