I've always known there to be 9 members of the Garuntee Group. However, I came across a tenth member, Joey Thompson on ET's list of those who boarded Titanic at Belfast. But, on his biography, it is said he disembarked at Southampton. Why is he a Garuntee Group member, then? And, if he is, then how do you explain the ten members? Did Thomas Andrews not count as a member?

I'm new and also very confused. Please clear this up for me.

Joey Thompson was not needed on the maiden voyage. He made the voyage from Belfast to Southampton as a painter, doing with his stuff the last work on the ship.
Including Thomas Andrews we have 9 members (without him 8) of the Guarantee Group. I guess it depends on how someone count them. I think in many books you will find that they were 8 members working under Andrews.
