From what I have read so far, Charlotte Cardeza filed a claim for $177,352.75. In the end of all the lawsuits, she was only compensated $8,000Teresa, I repeat, there is no complete list of all money paid out. Too many records have vanished. It's possible that money was paid by the Mansion House Fund as late as 1997. I've even seen claims that there is still somebody receiving money.
Certain researchers are working on this in the UK but it's a devil of a job. I can't see a full record ever being made. Give the researchers time, they'll need it.
Most of the money that went to passengers was raised in the USA. A huge fund was run from the Mayor of New York's office. There could be a great deal of material there. A few British passengers returned to the UK and were helped. We seem to know more about them than about the hundreds that stayed in the USA.
Darren, the musos sure got a raw deal from White Star, but their dependents were well cared for. The Mansion House Fund agreed to treat the musos as passengers. They also were helped by the huge benefit concert held on 24 May 1912 in the Royal Albert Hall.
I would think that the worst off would have been the dependents of crew who received the minimum compensation of 150 pounds and were left with a horde of children to care for.
