Crew member relatives on board

Andrew Maheux

Everyone usually just thinks of the impact on the number of lives lost between the families of passengers. But I'm also interested about the crew members who had relatives that were on the Titanic as well.

There was Ernest Allen (Trimmer) who lost his brother Frederick Allen (Lift Attendant).

Alfred Pugh (3rd class Steward) who lost his brother Percy Pugh (Leading Fireman).

Harriette McLaren (Stewardess) who lost her brother Frank Allsop (Saloon Steward).

Walter Hurst (Fireman) who lost his Father-in-Law William Mintram (Fireman).

Henry Noss (Fireman) who lost a relative, Bertram Noss (Fireman).

G. Chitty (Assistant Baker) and his relative Archibald Chitty (3rd class Steward) were both lost in the sinking.

Albert Akermann (3rd class Steward) and his brother Joseph Akermann (Assistant Pantryman) were also victims.

Does anyone know what "G. Chitty"'s name was and what the relationship between Henry and Bertram Noss as well as G and Archibald Chitty were.

Were Edward and Harry Stroud related?

If anyone knows anymore crew who had relatives also working on the ship, I would be most happy to know.

Thank you

Hi Andrew. My two great Uncles (Brothers), were assigned to the Titanic after the coal strike in England saw that the other liners were to be delayed. Their names were Frederick and George Clench. They were originally to sail with the Olympic. Frederick survived, but George was lost. If you put the surname CLENCH in the search engine, you will find some information regarding Frederick, but there is not much information regarding George. Hope this helps. Regards, Mark Clench.

Hi Andrew, I was just surfing around in here and found you posting. I thought it was very interesting, this was one aspect I had never thought of, crew members working on the ship together and one of them not surviving. Best of luck in you search, and I will be stopping back by to see what you have found out.

Hi Andrew, My great grandfather Albert Hunt was a trimmer who survived the sinking. His brother was Tom Hunt who was a fireman on board and he went down with the ship. Hope this helps.
