Dear Mona,

There was no member of the crew with the
surname Burnette aboard Titanic. The closest
case would be the mis-spelling for the name
of a Fireman, George Bennett.
Unless he travelled under another name on
Titanic, I am afraid the gentleman was not
on board. Sounds as though there's a story
there, however.

Hope this helps,

Brian

Dear Brian, Thanks for the tip. Ihad also thought he may have been Walter "Bennet" Belford. Thanks again, Mona

Dear Mona,

Walter Belford claimed to have been the
"Chief Night Baker" on board Titanic that night.
He convinced Walter Lord that he was a survivor
during the writing of Mr Lord's book in the
1950's, but cannot be traced to actual crew
rosters whether post or pre-sinking. There is
a man with a similar name on Titanic in the
cooks department who was lost, but that's as
close as it gets I am afraid.
Thanks for the heads-up! Will be looking
for further posts from you.

Best Regards,

Brian

Hi Brian, Thanks for the info. Actually for a while I was thinking that maybe Walter Belford might possibly be Burnette because I read his middle name was Barnet but I just am not sure. Again, thanks for the help and the post. By the way, there is another crew member I have been having trouble finding info on. His name was Melville E. Stone. I believe it was Lord who mentions him, I'm not sure, but he was listed as a steward, but that's all I have on him. Do you by any chance have a list Thanks, Mona
