Frederick Tamlyn

Mr Frederick Tamlyn

Frdd Tamlyn

Frederick Tamlyn was born in Southampton, Hampshire, England in the last months of 1888. He was the son of George Alfred Tamlyn (b. 1847), a seaman, and Annie Matilda Hayter (b. 1855). His father was originally from Devon and his mother from Southampton and they had married in 1874.

Frederick was one of nine children but he lost one sibling in their infancy. His surviving siblings were: Alfred Charles (b. 1875), Walter (b. 1877), George Henry (b. 1878), Annie (b. 1880), Rosa Rhoda (b. 1882), Josiah (b. 1885) and Mabel May (b. 1890).

Frederick appears on the 1891 census when he and his family were living at 11 Upper Bannister Street, All Saints, Southampton. The family moved to 20 Southampton Street, All Saints by the time of the 1901 census and his father was by now working as a dock foreman. Frederick would live at this address for the rest of his life but would be absent from the 1911 census and presumably at sea at the time.

When Frederick signed on to the Titanic, on 9 April 1912, he gave his address as 20 Southampton Street, (Southampton). His previous ship had been the Oceanic and as a mess steward he would receive monthly wages of £4.

Frederick Tamlyn was lost in the sinking. His body, if recovered, was never identified.

His parents, who later benefitted from the Titanic Relief Fund, continued to reside in Southampton, his mother passing away in 1919 and his father is 1925.
