There is a story, passed on through the generations of my family, that my Great Grandfather Henry 'Harry' Baylis was believed to have joined the crew of the Titanic under an assumed name and perished in the disaster. He went on the run from the Royal Navy in 1910 and disappeared. I wondered whether anyone could tell me whether those enlisting as crew would have had to produce any form of identification. One of Harry's granddaughters was told that it was thought he had gone under the name of Arthur Tizard and was employed as a stoker. However, the records that I have seen on Encyclopedia Titanica provide family backgrounds for this crew member, including details of parents, siblings, spouse and children, that contradict this.
