Ali Lam

Mr Ali Lam

Mr Ali Lam, 37, came from Hong Kong. He was unmarried.

Lam was travelling to New York City with eight colleagues from the Donaldson Line's Anetta. He was a fireman.

While it has been alleged that some or all were stowaways on the Titanic, in fact all eight boarded the Titanic at Southampton as fare-paying third class passengers. Lee Bing, Chang Chip, Choong Foo, Ling Hee, Ali Lam, Len Lam, Fang Lang and Lee Ling travelled together on the same ticket (ticket number 1601, 56 9s 11d)

Ali Lam was rescued (1)
