Mr George Ingram
George Ingram1 was born in Southampton, Hampshire, England on 28 September 1892. He was the son of Henry Ingram (b. 1861) and Matilda Pitman (b. 1860), both Hampshire-natives who had married in 1881 in Southampton. George was one of eleven children born to his parents: his siblings were: Fronnie (b. 1882), Amelia (b. 1884), Florence (b. 1883), Lydia (b.1886), Louisa (b. 1889), Henry (b. 1891), Robert (b. 1895), William (b. 1897), Matilda (b. 1900) and Alice (b. 1904).
On the 1891 census, the year before George's birth, his family reside at 104 Bevois Street, Southampton and his father is described as a hawker in drapery. They are still at this address for the 1901 census, this time his father is described as a wardrobe dealer. George's father died around 1910 and by the time of the 1911 census his mother is a widow and they have relocated to 56 Princes Street, Southampton. George is described as a general labourer and as unmarried.
When George signed onto the Titanic he gave his address as 18 Lower Canal Walk, Southampton2. As a trimmer he could expect to receive wage of £5 10s per month.
George died in the Titanic disaster. His body (#204) was recovered by the Mackay-Bennett and was buried at Fairview Cemetery in Halifax, Nova Scotia on 6 May 1912.
George's mother Matilda died in Southampton in 1930.
