    Olympic's Tourist Class Public Rooms

    I'm trying to find my 1933 third class plan for you. However, there had already been changes made before 1933. In the forward third class saloon on F-deck, the starboard side was divided and became a stewards' mess. We need to recognise that third class passenger numbers were so low that they...

    John Boyd-1st Class Saloon Steward

    Hi Simon My great grandpa Alfred Boyd was John Boyd’s older brother, and my grandma spoke of John’s tragic death on the Titanic when we were children. I don’t have any photos of Alfred or John, but I was wondering if you had found any over the last three years since you posted your message on...

    First Class Bedroom Steward Schedule

    Interesting! Thank you! Do you by any chance know what time the "night watchmen" would switch again with the other steward in the morning?

    Where did the First Class Bedroom Stewards Sleep?

    For salaries I recommend, Gunter Babler's book, Guide to the Crew of Titanic. Breaks down almost every job based on survivor testimony. It lists the survived crew from those departments, breaks down uniforms, and how much they were paid. Great book. It almost rivals On a Sea of Glass, and ten...

    First Class Bedroom Steward Schedule

    Good day to you sir, The first class bedroom stewards looked after more staterooms than just three to five staterooms. On a full booked ship they would look after 11 to 24 passengers in total in of about 9 staterooms. Henry Etches looked after the staterooms B-84, B-86, B-88, B-90, B-92, B-94...

    First Class Bedroom Steward Schedule

    Hello everyone! I was wondering what the shift schedule for a first class bedroom steward might be? I understand they served 3-5 rooms onboard, but were they expected to attend to these rooms constantly? Did one steward cover an assigned section of cabins at day and another take on these duties...

    Where did the First Class Bedroom Stewards Sleep?

    Indeed, it was a spelling mistake on my part. The bugler steward was Percy William Fletcher (1887-1912). The superior stewards which occupied that dormitory were the first class stewards who looked after the open spaces along with the first class deck stewards.

    Where did the First Class Bedroom Stewards Sleep?

    I guess the "Burglar" was actually a "Bugler"? Mentioned in the Cameron film by Ms Brown as sounding like a cavalry charge...

    Where did the First Class Bedroom Stewards Sleep?

    Yes, it was the people they served who were 1st, 2nd Class etc., not the stewards themselves! They could be in a different service on their next voyage or swapped about on the same voyage. I would expect them all to be of the same rank other than the "Superior" stewards and those with a...

    Paul Mauge and the restaurant staff: "And there they die."

    Perhaps he referred to the alarm bells besides the horizontal watertight doors. The quarters of á la care restaurant staff was located between three horizontal watertight doors (Bulkhead L and M, and a small horizontal watertight door that closed a small stairwell leading to the starboard...

    Paul Mauge and the restaurant staff: "And there they die."

    I am trying to make sense of Paul Mauge's testimony concerning the adventures of himself and the restaurant staff during the sinking. These are the bits that are puzzling me: 1. "At the moment I heard the alarm signal, and I went to the front, the steward sent me back to my cabin." What alarm...

    Miss Ann Elizabeth Isham

    There is an excellently researched article by Randy Bigham on ET about the possible fate of Ann Isham. It is well worth a read. What happened to Lizzy? Ann Elizabeth "Lizzy" Isham was a single, middle-aged woman from Chicago and one of the only 4 adult women First Class passengers who died in...

    Victor Giglio

    I think the staff that took care of the passengers needs probably saw lots of stuff going on. It came with the territory. If they were caught dishing dirt they would have found themselves unemployed rather quickly. No need for extra incentives unless it was something really bad. As to a topic in...

    Victor Giglio

    It wouldn't be the first time that an arraignment like that would have taken place. But I was just speculating on the question as to why he had his servant booked into the same cabin. Looks good to the public and wifey back home. President Kennedy was known for doing the hotel swap on more than...

    Victor Giglio

    Actually, that's interesting. Can it be that Guggenheim, a married man, only made it appear on paper and in public that he was sharing a cabin with Victor Giglio? Perhaps Mme Aubart actually spent the nights in B86 with Giglio sleeping in B35? The respective bedroom stewards would have found out...

    Where did the First Class Bedroom Stewards Sleep?

    It's confusing as heck! How do the historians keep track of it all? I spent about an hour staring at that side of the ship on the plans trying to find the 1st Class Stewardesses cabins/bunks, going with the same logic as they must be on Scotland Road, only to find they have to bunk cabins on the...

    Where did the First Class Bedroom Stewards Sleep?

    A lot of regular stewards were berthed on the portside of E-Deck. It seems no matter which class you served, slept together! (they were sorted by class and type but still in adjacent rooms)

    First Funnel Collapse

    You mean the Stewards' accommodation on E-Deck? I mean, its plausible, but a good portion of these rooms were aft of the E-Deck staircase, and with the increasing trim, the water would have to go "uphill" to go much farther than the staircase down to the Third Class Dining Saloon and the...
