Looking for details of Richard Fry, may be a distant relation of mine. How can I get further details, a death certificate? Regards Bill

He was servant to J.B.Ismay and perished in the sinking: his body was never recovered.

I cannot help but recall Guggenheim and his manservant who stuck together and decided to "dress in their best".

Why do you suppose Ismay's servant didn't do the same? I've had a look on the Titanic Inquiry Project, and a quick look doesn't reveal any pages in which Ismay and Fry were mentioned together. I can't even recall anyone saying that they say Fry that night.

It seems that they weren't together that night. When asked during the American Inquiry Ismay says that after the collission he spoke to no other passengers that he knew. I would assume that he also meant Mr. Fry. He mentions going back to his room after stepping into the hall and getting dressed and speaking with the Capt. on the bridge but never Mr. Fry. I know this isnt a definitive answer as I am looking into anything else I might have. But just wanted to give you a heads up.

Richard Fry was my great-grandfather. His daughter - Winifred had 3 children - Margaret, Richard and Brian (my father). Winifred died in 2003 - not in Manchester as reported in the article, but in Ruislip, Middlesex. Her mother, Mary Ann Burton and her two children - Winifred and Ronald were taken into the Ismay household after their father's death on the Titanic.
