Hallo, Carol. Your grandfather was certainly not onboard the Titanic, but there was an Oscar Greiner serving as a cook on the Lusitania. How this man fared in that sinking I don't know, but there are experts here who may be able to tell you more.

You can view the list of the 'victualling crew' on the Lusitania here:
Victualling Crew List « The Lusitania Resource

This reveals that Oscar Greiner was a 'roast cook' and that he was a survivor. Elsewhere he is described as 'a Grimsby man'. Does that sound like your grandfather? I can't tell you any more, but on that same website you can learn anything you might want to know about the Lusitania and its sinking.

Hi Bob

Thank you for you reply, my dad said he has seen some information on the internet that he was on the Titanic, not sure if he was a passenger or crew, i will try and find out where he got his information from, i would like to find out more, i find this very interesting.
