James was my great uncle. He survived. He returned to Southampton, without being asked any questions at the enquiry, and resumed his work on the sea. As it happens he survived another sea disaster in WW2. He died - I believe from smoke and dust inhalation, almost in obscurity, and very lonely. He felt guilty for the rest of the life for having survived and getting into one of the Titanic lifeboats, when so many perished. He told my Aunt what happened in the area he worked. Does anyone have any information about my uncle please. Thank you.

Thank you Steven Christian for your response. I have seen all these articles and had a copy of my family member's (Peter Crimmins) booklet for some years.

Its always a pity to read how so many survivors died in poverty or alone in unfortunate circumstances. One an only imagine his thoughts on being shipwrecked a second time.
Just reading through the biography there, the date of death in the main text is 15th February, but in the stats below that, it says 16th February. I assume one is a mistype. Nevertheless, it’s good to see the lives of these people recorded for posterity.
