Hey everyone.

I have some questions.

On April 10th. Witch Crew member checked the tickets before passengers went onboard?

And did they also checked the tickets of Stewards and stewardesses?

And did they also checked the passports?

Thank you.

Carl,
The tickets weren't processed at the door. Instead, First and Second class passengers would have to stop by the Purser's office to have them processed before going to their cabins. Stewards would help with this also.
Every third class passenger had to undergo a medical examination outside of the ship to make sure they would not bring anything aboard. This was oversaw by Titanic's Surgeon, Dr. William Francis Norman O'Loughlin, senior surgeon of the White Star Line. Their passports would then be collected and passed to the right authorities onboard the Titanic.

Thank you Shane.

So, First and second class passengers did end had to show there passport, right?

And stewardesses (like Evelyn Marsden?) Did they had to show it?

Yes,
All passengers were required to show proof that they had indeed purchased a berth on the voyage.
As for stewards/stewardesses, they had to sign in upon boarding the ship.
All Ahead Full!
