Mr Alfred Pirrie Middleton
He was educated at the Intermediate School, Sligo and was placed with a firm of electrical and mechanical engineers in Glasgow for practical training. During this time he studied at Glasgow Technical Institute and later worked for Telford, Grier & Mackay Ltd of Glasgow and superintended electrical work for them in Ireland.
In July 1911 he was engaged by Harland & Wolff but joined the Aberdeen White Star Line`s ship Demosthenes in August 1911 for its maiden voyage to Brisbane. After that voyage he returned to Harland & Wolff and shortly thereafter was appointed to the Titanic alongside his good friend Assistant Electrician Albert George Ervine.
Middleton died in the sinking, his body, if recovered, was never identified.
