Mr Frederick Joseph Goodwin

Frederick Goodwin was a 42-year-old electrical engineer living with his wife, Augusta, 43 and six children, Lillian, 16; Charles, 14; William, 11; Jessie, 10; Harold, 9; and baby Sidney, in a row house in Fulham, England.

His brother, Thomas, who had settled in Niagra Falls, New York, notified Frederick of an opening at the big power station there, so he decided to move to America with his family. Selling their home in Fulham, the family paused briefly in Marcham, booking passage on a small steamer operating out of Southampton. With little savings, they were travelling Third Class but their sailing was cancelled due to the coal strike and they were transferred to the Titanic.

The entire family was lost in the sinking.
