i just started reading the inquiry into the Titanic disaster.
I was wondering how many if any third class survivors were questioned?

I read somewhere that they were overlooked and possibly none were questioned.

thanks,

Hello, Wendy,

three third class passengers come to mind as being questions by the US Inquiry:

Olaus Abelseth
Daniel Buckley
Berk Pickard

In relation to the number of first class passengers or officer, yes, they were pretty much left out of the questioning process.

Don Lynch had once said that back then, society was very much divided and respect generally went to the first class people or the honorable ships officers, so their testimony was more valued and sought after than those of the lower classes, given the choice.

Lawrence Beesley did an excellent job recounting the disaster from a second class perspective. I don't think any second class passengers were called to testify.

I hope this helps!
