My Great Grandfather, was a bedroom steward on the Titanic. he helped Nurse Cleaver and Trevor Allison to safety. once they where on the life boat, there was one space left on life boat 7, so they allowed My Great Grandfather (William Faulkner) to board the life boat . he was also the only person that was allowed to hold Trevor once on board.
That’s a wonderful memory for you and your family. I hope your great grandfather William had a long and happy life after going through that horrible event. I can’t imagine how scary and sad he was seeing the demise of the ship in front of him. Did he style in NZ after?
