Miss Marion Elsie Smith

Miss Marion Elsie Smith, 40, was born in Basingstoke, England, where she lived together with her mother at 12 New Road. She was on her way to Washington, D.C. (1243 New Hampshire Avenue). To reach her destination, she boarded the Titanic at Southampton as a second class passenger. She bought ticket number 31418 for £13.

Miss Smith survived the sinking and she was rescued by the Carpathia, probably in lifeboat 9.

She sent a Marconigramm to her mother's address, which was transmitted on 18 April at 3.51 pm.
