Dear all-

Does anyone have any more information about Katie Walsh a stewardess aboard Titanic? There is a bit of information on this site (the only place I've been able to find info) but not much in depth. Is there any mention of her in the recent Titanic books?

TUOM in advance for the help.

Clonmel Chronicle, April 19 1912:

"Kate Walsh, formerly living in College Street, Clonmel, and afterwards married to a man named Roche, at one time storekeeper in Clonmel Asylum".

Thank you, Inger. Clonmel is in Ireland then? I know at the time of the sinking she listed her home as Southampton but that's not unusual since most of the crew did.

How is "The Irish Aboard Titanic"? There are so many new books coming out with new perspectives on Titanic that it's hard to keep up with all of them.

Catherine Walsh was one of only three female members of the crew to perish, and of these three (the other two were Lucille Snape and Katherine Wallis), the least is known about her. There were only 23 female crew members on the Titanic, and all were stewardesses. The other 20 survived.

Is Catherine Walsh your ancestor?
