Hi Inger,
You've brought up another good point. I've also come across interviews that say, " a steward said, ".... but there is no name attached.
That's hilarious that Lowe's teachers remember him, but don't say why. Again, it's those little details that make these people more real to us.

Hi Michael-
I should have wrote- amusing, not funny. I realize now it changed the context of my sentence. You are right though, not much has changed since then.
Very best
Mike

Ain't that the awful bloody truth? If you have a chance, you might want to read Frump's "And The Sea Shall Free Them" which deals with the Marine Electric sinking. Some of the same old games were going on with that one too.

HI Michael,
I'll definitely have to track that book down.
Sounds like a good one. Thanks for mentioning it.

Anyone know where Boxhall lived with his wife? Was it Hull or Sharrow maybe?

And my second question: was he Anglician or Christian?

Regina, you ask me? :) Then well, I am not from England at all. I am from Poland (I have a dog from Yorkshire. Yorkshire Terrier, heh).
It's wonderfull that your family lives in Yorkshire. I love that part of England, to be honest, thanks to officer Boxhall and Moody ;) I would like to know what informations about Joseph G. Boxhall have Hull city but I don't have opportunity to go there. So I am looking for informations about this officer on ET. They're here people with so big knowledge, especially Inger, but sadly she's not responding

Boxhalls' familly? Today lives descendants of Joseph sisters (he and his wife Marjory had no children). He had two sisters - older Violet and younger Mabel ("Mae"). And also one more sister, Enid Grace, but she died in infancy. Joeseph was son of Joseph Boxhall Sr. (15. 02. 1858 - 29. 05. 1928) and Miriam (Mary) Abigail Groves (1861 - 03. 1903). His father was a Captain from Wilson Line of Hull, his uncle was working in Trinity House and was Board of Trade official, and his grandfather was a sailor. Josephs' father remerried after Miriam died in 1903.

Your grandmother is Polish? Where's she live? Say hello to her from me :) Or say "Pozdrawiam", this is in Polish ;)

And yes, I mean Anglican or Catholic (sorry, my mistake).
