Henry Baldwin

RMS Carpathia Steward

Mr Henry “Harry” Baldwin was born in Sutton, Lancashire, England on 6 April 1879 and was baptised on 25 May that year. One of at least ten children, he was the son of James Baldwin, a licensed victualler, and the former Charlotte Stott. 

Baldwin was raised in Sutton but by 1901 was living and working as a barman in Walton, Liverpool. Sometime after he went to sea and by 1912 was a steward aboard Carpathia when that ship rescued the survivors of the Titanic disaster.

Baldwin apparently did not continue a lengthy ocean-going career, deciding instead to settle in Warrington where he took land-based jobs; the 1939 register states that he was a steward at the local Conservative Club in Lymm.

In 1915 he married Mary Annie Davies (b. 1890 in Wednesbury, Staffordshire) and they had a son, William (b. 1916).

Harry Baldwin died in Warrington in the latter half of 1976 aged 97.
