Mr Alfred Nichols
(Daily Sketch 18 April 1912)
Mr Alfred "Big Neck" Nichols, 42, was born in Sydney, Australia.
He was on board the Titanic for her delivery trip from Belfast to Southampton. When he signed-on again, in Southampton, on 6 April 1912, he gave his address as St. Cloud Oak Tree Road, (Southampton). His last ship had been the Olympic. As Boatswain he received monthly wages of £8 10s.
After the collision Nichols led a team of 6 seamen to open some of the lower gangway doors to load lifeboats, since he and the seamen were never seen again what became of them remains a mystery.
Nichols body, if recovered, was never identified.
