Sig. Narciso Bazzi
Mr Narciso Bazzi , 33, an unmarried waiter in the à-la-carte-reataurant, was born at Brissago, Kanton Ticino, Switzerland on 22 July 1878, the son of Demetrio and Marietta. After several years he spent in the Transvaal he went to London at the end of 1911, where he worked at the restaurant of his brother Giuseppe and later worked on the Olympic. During the following April, he was on leave at Brissago, when he received a telegram: he had to embark on the Titanic in order to replace one of his colleagues, who was sick, Giovanelli, being from Brissago as well. His wages were £3 per month (plus tip).
According to the US Senate report he lived at 21, Great Chapel Street, Oxford Street, London. The same report lists him as L. Bazzi.
Bazzi died in the sinking, his body, if recovered, was never identified.
In his family's chapel in the Cemetery of Brissago, on a marble slab, fixed on the wall, there is a moustached young man's photo, with jacket and tie, and you can read:
His mother received 12 shillings outstanding wages from White Star and £80 from the Lord Mayor Fund.
