i don't know if anyone will find this interesting (Mark Chirnside and Michael Standart probably will) but i found out from Mr Chirnside's book:THE OLYMPIC CLASS SHIPS that i live by the place where one of the deaths of Britannic lived. Captain (sic.Lieutenant)John Cropper lived at Mount Ballan, chepstow, monmouthshire. I also live in chepstow and the place where Captain Cropper lived with his wife anne is a massive house, which has now been turned into a nursing home. interesting eh? does anyone know how i can track people like this down and learn about their history? please tell me!

I think it would take a lot of legwork to say nothing of spending a lot of time in libraries and newspaper morgues. The Britannic, sadly, has never recieved anything even close to the attention her more notorious sister did. That means you have to first find out who was aboard, then use that information to start doing a lot of detective work that may literally take a lifetime to accomplish.

You may find http://www.hospitalshipbritannic.com/crew_list.htm to be a useful starting point as this represents the names of people known to be on the ship and even links to the odd biography and obituary.
