Paula........ Like your great great uncle, Mine also served on the Carpathia and was awarded a medal. My mother has always told me that he was a purser and helped save Lady Astor, which annoyed the family that he and the others were given medals, especially when Lord Astor was found it was reputed that "his pockets were stuffed with money". I am having problems finding him (1) His name was Courtney and there is no trace of any Courtney, on any crew listings that I have seem so far. Can any one give me another avenue to take. All information gratefully received.
Brian - I'm new to the group. Are you able to tell me anything about my great uncle Alfred Morgan, who was serving on the Carpathia. I found a crew member list and learned that he was 20 years old and listed as an Able Seaman. My older family members told me he had a bronze medal -- they had seen it. It was in the possession of one of my great aunts. No one found it, however, after she died. I'm just sick about this. I'm told that my uncle Alfred later drowned at sea, but I don't know any of the details. Thanks in advance for any info you could share. -- Dianne
Able Seaman Alfred Morgan was 20 years old, Born in Yorkshire and served on the SS Inkula before signing on the Carpathia.
He would, along with the rest of the Crew have been presented with a Bronze medal after the disaster.
I am sorry but that is all I have on him.
If you write to the Archivist at Southampton City Archives, Civic Centre Southampton and ask them if they have the C.R. 10 of Mr. Morgan.
A C.R. 10 is the Seamans record of all ships that he served on and also there may possibly be a photograph.
