Hi Patrick,

Good observations. However, body #264 could not have been that of William H. Lyons. Following the sinking, Lyons managed to swim to boat #4 where he was hauled aboard. Before long he lapsed into unconsciousness. He was barely alive when he was taken aboard Carpathia. He eventually succumbed on Tuesday night, 4.00am. The engines were stopped and he was buried at sea.

Hope this helps,

Ben
