Hello,

Is it known how many of Lusitania's Crew members were no British subjects. For my list I am looking for some information concerning the nationality of the crew members.I know that most of them had the British nationality, but there were some other nationalities among them.

Mrs. Enderson, the matron and her assistant Mrs. Jorgenson for example, were from a nothern European country. Which I do not remember, I believe it was the first from Norway and the second from Denmark. Bot I do not know it for sure.
Some cooks have names that not sound very English, for example Nussbaum, Betrand, Seurre, Ulgar and Ottino. And Baker Gytenbeek.

Regards,

Hildo

Hello Cliff,

Thank you for the information. It helps me a bit furher on my Lusitania list.
I see my that I had the nationality of Mrs. Enderson and Mrs. Jorgenson correctly remembered. And I Thought so that Mr. Giftenburg (or Gytenbeek) had the Dutch nationality.

Regards,

Hildo

Hello again, please note that 'Sterberg' or 'Sternberg' cannot possibly be spelt correctly in the lists. Such a name simply doesn't exist (to my knowledge, at least); it must surely be 'í–sterberg' or possibly 'Stjernberg', I don't know which.

Best regards,

Peter
