Four women in first class perished Ida Straus, Edith Evans,Bessie Allison and Ann Isham. Something like 12 women perished in second class and third class was something around or above fifty.

Hello Andrew,

1st Class: 139 women survived, 4 were lost. - 4 of the 5 children survived.

2nd Class: 83 women survived, 12 were lost. - All 22 children survived.

3rd Class: 91 women survived, 89 were lost. That is one more than in my paper on this web-site as I later discovered that Mathilde Lefebvre was aged 12 [not 11 as I had understood] and therefore counts as an adult female, not as a child. - In addition 30 children/infants survived and 49 were lost.

Crew: 20 survived and 3 were lost.

In total 333 women survived and 108 were lost.

To find my paper: The Statistics of the Disaster, do a search under my name.
I hope that helps,
Lester

Hi Lester,
Thank you very much. There were only 5 children in 1st class? I thought there were more than 5 children.

Hello Andrew,

The usual figure is 6, but as those aged 12 and about counted as adults, it means there were only 5.

Jon Paul, 12 year olds were charged full adult fares. Only those aged 11 and below traveled at the cheaper rates for children. In a more general legal sense in the UK in 1912, those aged up to 11 were classed as children, 12-15 as 'young people', 16 and above as adults but still 'minors' until they were 21.
