Ludwig Müller, 36, was born in Germany around 1875.
He appears on the 1911 census of England living at 67 Oxford Street, Southampton, the home of a Mr Charles Sharp and his family. Ludwig, at the time, gave his name as Louis and his profession as a ship's interpreter. Also present at this address was another future Titanic colleague, Francis Ford.
He signed-on to the Titanic on 4 April 1912 and came aboard on 10 April. His previous engagement was on the Olympic. His monthly wages were £4, 10s and he gave his address as 67 Oxford Street, Southampton.
Müller was an interpreter steward for the third class passengers. During the sinking, it is likely that Mr Müller encountered a staggering workload trying to deal with Titanic's steerage who hailed from many countries, not just those confined to Western Europe.
Ludwig, who was unmarried, died in the sinking and his body, if recovered, was never identified.
His dependants received his outstanding wages of 18s and on 7 April 1913 his estate worth £433, 8s, 2d was administered to Franz Dinkeldein, deputy consul and attorney to one Hermann Müller, possibly his father.
