1,496, 1,517 and 1,523. I've heard these three numbers being thrown around in the Titanic community. Can anyone throw in their two cents?

I've heard a lot of different numbers for the dead. 1522, 1523, 1502, 1595, etc. (and yes I know about the fireman Coffey who deserted at Queenstown)

The number saved has almost invariably been 705, but I've heard a few times mentioned here that it was 712.

So what is it exactly?
Don't forget about half of the dozen or so that were pulled from the water when the lifeboats went back died from exposure being in wet clothes. That's what probably brings the number from 712 to 705.
