Mr Thomas Gould was born in Liverpool, England in 1885. He was the son of railway porter William Gould and the former Ann Gobbon. He had seven siblings.
Like his elder brother Richard (b. 1881), Thomas was apprenticed as a boilermaker and by 1911 he was boarding at 133 Beresford Road, Liverpool.
In April 1912 Gould served as a boilermaker on the eastward voyage of Carpathia when that ship rescued the survivors of the Titanic disaster.
On Christmas Eve 1913, Gould was married to Gertrude Lockley (b. 1889) and their son George was born in 1914. In May 1915 Thomas lost his elder brother in the Lusitania disaster, a member of that ship’s engineering department, Richard Gould.
Thomas Gould died in Liverpool in 1968 at the age of 82; he was buried in the Ford Cemetery.
