Mrs Elizabeth May Leather (née Edwards)
Mrs Elizabeth Leather, 41, was born in Liverpool.
When she signed-on to the Titanic on 6 April 1912 she gave her address as 28 Park Road, Port Sunlight, Liverpool. Her last ship had been the Olympic. As a stewardess she received monthly wages of £3 10s.
At the time of the collision she was asleep in her berth and was not awakened by the impact, instead she awoke some three quarters of an hour later. She found as she made her way to see to her passengers that they had already abandoned their quarters, so she proceeded on up to B deck. She was rescued in lifeboat 16.
She was called to testify at the Board of Trade Enquiry on Monday, May 20, 1912.
