Crew survivor John Bertram Ellis


Geoff Ellis

John Bert(ram) Ellis, Assistant vegetable cook aged 30. Gave address as 30 Dukes Road, Southampton, was rescued, possibly in lifeboat 2.
What happened to him after his rescue? Did he return to England? Can anyone help me in finding any information about him. He was my grandfather

Dear Geoff, just for the record: it is not certain whether Mr Ellis left the Titanic in boat No 2. I have never come across an interview with him; there was a cook (or a person from the kitchen anyway) in boat 2, there was one in boat 8 and there were apparently several in boat 13.
I have as yet not discovered anything about him after he signed off after the disaster I am afraid.
