Charles Hurst was my great grandfather and was a Fireman/Stoker. My son has become very interested in his story having studied the Titanic at school. I am looking for any photos of the crew and the areas they lived and worked in. He was never found but we do have information about him and his life as well as the usual family photos.
Can anyone help??

Clive, what little ET has on him can be found HERE.

While you probably won't have too much trouble finding crew photos, finding photos of the working spaces on the Titanic herself may be quite a trick. Apparently, it never occured to anyone to keep an extensive official record of the engineering spaces, and what may have been done is either no longer extant or in private collections. There are some construction photos of the Olympic class liners engineering spaces, but they're few and far between.

Charles John Hurst, known to family and friends as 'Jack', was my great grandfather, who lived at 3,Laundry Road, Shirley Warren. He had 4 children, Leonard, Michael, Herbert and Gladys, who was my grandmother. They moved to 1,Laundry Road, where I lived up until one year ago. Glad had 2 daughters, Janet and Diane, my mother.I'd be interested in getting in touch as we seem to be related. How do you fit into our family tree?

Hi Lisa,

You might want to send Clive an e-mail, by clicking on his name. It appears that he hasn't logged on in a few months.

Just a thought.

Best regards,

Jason

I am a grand-daughter of Charles John Hurst. Although I have maintained in Interest in his fate for many years I do not even have a known photograph of him. It sounds as if Clive and Lisa may have some. I recognise Lisa as the daughter of my cousin Diane, and presume Clive is Jan's son. If either of them ever visit this site I would be delighted to make more direct contact.

Hello Julia,

Welcome aboard. Clive is no longer a member of the board, so it is very unlikely that he will see your message. As for Lisa, she has not accessed the board since June 6, 2006. But, you can send her a message through her profile by clicking on her name.

Hello Julia,

I changed my e mail address so may not have received any previous attempts to get in contact. I didn't hear back from Clive, assume he was a son of either Pauline or Mercia, daughters of Mike Hurst (Michael, son of Charles Hurst) as they emigrated to Australia, which is where he was living I think. My mother Diane and her sister Jan are unfortunately deceased, but I am in regular contact with Jan's daughters Sadie and Lucy. I have a large photo of Charles Hurst and will try and post it on this site sometime this week.

Hello Lisa,
My name is (Murray) Jack Lovell and Charles John Hurst is my great grandfather through his eldest son Edwin John Hurst (1898 - 1958) and wife Lillian.
My mother was their only daughter Gladys Hurst who married Murray Carbonel Lovell in the mid 40's.
Members of the Hurst family continued to reside in Laundry Road certainly into the 60's and I remember in my early teens dropping in to cadge a cigarette from the twenty-something Diana who I had a crush on.
It has been a long time since there was any activity on this post but if you do receive this I would welcome a line from you.
Jack

Hello again!
I am Clive Keevil. My mother was Pauline Hurst, daughter of Michael Hurst (Mick) (Michael, son of Charles Hurst). He was with his relative Walter Hurst who survived via Lifeboat B.

I moved to Australia in 2000 and now have a grandson, 7 months, who we are putting together a family tree and a family history. Any references would help as we don't want this event to be forgotten.

As mum and dad have now passed we are the new torch bearers within our section of the family. Any contacts, info would be welcome

Stay safe

Clive Keevil

Were Charles and Walter Hurst related? I was under the impression that Walter Hurst (Titanic survivor) was the son-in-law of fellow fireman William Mintram (victim). I did not know that they were also related to Charles Hurst?

William Mintram had a son named Charles who was 19 years old at the time the Titanic sank but he had nothing to do with the ship. Charles Mintram lived into his 90s, passing on in 1986.
