Passenger demography of the second voyage that never was

Looking at the passenger demography of (mainly THIRD CLASS) passengers on board the Titanic's ill-fated maiden voyage, one can see a rather unusual distribution of Continental European passengers on board. Taking into account the prevalent total populations of those countries, there were disproportionately large number of passengers from the comparatively thinly populated Scandinavian countries (especially Finns) as opposed to the more densely inhabited countries like Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Holland etc. My belief is that it was just "one of those things" - a simple coincidence that happened on that particular voyage. The make-up of Third Class passengers for the next East-West voyage that never took place might have been totally different.

Considering that this hypothetical second Westbound voyage of the Titanic was scheduled to take place around 11 days or so later, I am guessing there must have been several ticket bookings already. Is there any information available on the passenger make-up of the Titanic's second voyage, especially Third Class?
