(From the Salisbury Journal, April 20th, 1912, page 12).
Two brothers, Frank and Albert Akerman, the sons of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Akerman of the Almshouses, London Road, Salisbury, were also on the Titanic, being employed in the catering department of the White Star Line. They were born in Salisbury, but Frank Akerman, who was married, and had five children, had a home at Southampton, Neither of their sons, said Mrs. Akerman, would have been on the Titanic but for the coal strike, in consequence of which they had had no work for some time, so were compelled to accept jobs on this boat''.
Mr. and Mrs. Akerman, of the Almshouses, have not received any official intimation as to the fate of their sons, Albert and Frank, who were employed in the catering department of the vessel. The Bishop called upon Mr. and Mrs. Akerman on Sunday and offered his sympathy.
