Mr Walter Hurst
Mr Walter Hurst, 23, was born in 1884 the son of Charles Hurst and Eliza (nee Miller).
He was married at the parish church of St Mary, Southampton, on 18th May 1907 to Rosina (née Mintram, 1887-1969). His father-in-law William Mintram was also a fireman on board the Titanic.
He lived at 15 Chapel Rd, Southampton with his wife and father-in-law..
William Mintram and Walter Hurst met each other shortly before the Titanic went down. William had found a lifejacket, but Hurst had not, so William gave his lifejacket to his son-in-law. This may have contributed to the fact that Walter was able to stay on collapsible B, and to survive, while William did not.
Walter and Rosina would go on to have six children.1 Walter Hurst died in Southampton on 17 December 1964 at Harefield, Southampton. His estate of £365 was left to his widow Rosina.
