George was an able seaman on the Carpathia which went to the rescue of the Titanic. For this he received a bronze medal, officers received silver & gold medals. He was my grandfather and as far as I know his career had always been in the Merchant Navy. He married a Catherine Winters in Liverpool and had 4 daughters. Catherine also gave birth to sons but unfortunately none lived passed the age of 2yrs as a result of Diptheria. He wrote a short summary in a notebook of the rescue of The Titanic which the family still own. This has been displayed in the Liverpool Maritime Museum at one point in the 1980's
