Hello Eileen,

You can get hold of a copy of the Titanic Relief Fund Mansion House booklet of March 1913 from the Titanic Historical Society. - For an idea of its content type the words Relief Fund into the Search Box on the opening paper of this web-site. Go to: 5. Titanic Relief Fund — Crew “Master List” Case Numbers : (2006) by Lester J. Mitcham - 29 Apr

The ladies you ask about were not on the Titanic. - You can also look at the Crew Sign-on sheets. Under Crew List go to: Southampton, Crew: Agreement and Account of Crew (PRO Ref: BT100/259)
6 Victualling Department - First Class
7 Victualling Department - Second Class
8 Victualling Department - Third Class / Galley
Supplement (Part III) : "Substitutes Engaged"

Hope that helps.

Hello everyone,

I have been busy for quite a while and have returned. Upon returning and searching randomly on this site, I noticed that "Mabel Bennett" was now identified as Hypatia Draco McLaren through a newspaper photo. The Plymouth photo however shows Hypatia wearing Mabel's coat, and thus we can say she gave it to her on Lifeboat 5 (they were in the same lifeboat).

My question is, is there any other photographs anyone has of Mabel that could help us identify her as any of the stewardesses in this photo?
