Len Lam

Mr Len Lam

Mr Len Lam, from Hong Kong, was travelling to New York City. He and his eight colleagues were sailors on the Donaldson Line's Anetta.

While it has been alleged that some or all were stowaways on the Titanic, in fact all eight boarded the Titanic at Southampton as fare-paying third class passengers. Lee Bing, Chang Chip, Choong Foo, Ling Hee, Ali Lam, Len Lam, Fang Lang and Lee Ling travelled together on the same ticket (ticket number 1601, 56 9s 11d)

Len Lam died in the sinking. His body, if recovered, was never identified.
