I was incredibly bored! I think I am going to do this with the 2nd and 3rd class survivors too. I will post my results. I was also trying to figure out if any survivors died on the exact same day, I will look. Take care everyone, and Happy Holidays!

Very exciting Mark- I guess Gracie was 1912 and Marjorie Newell was 1992 but you should record the names too. Was Madeline Astor the 1948? And the big year seems to have been 1949-I always wonder why-too late for post-war stress. Got any theories? Sad about Gracie, -his daughter in that elevator accident and the other dying in the flu epidemic- tragic family.

Edmund,
I think the Gracie daughter killed in the elevator was Constance (named for her mother) who died June 6, 1903 at the age of 12. I've never seen the details described but would love to know.

Well, this summer an effort to use time on my hands constructively presented itself after I took a course in MS Access (a database program) and to practise using it, entered all the Passenger and Crew data and see what kind of results would come about. By sorting the database of survivors by date of passing, I did discover that there was indeed one pair of survivors who passed away on the same date. Both Mrs. Lulu Drew and Mr. Albert Dick passed away on 6/2/1970.

Starting in 1960 there were at least seven instances of a survivor dying one day after another, the most recent being when Bertha Watt's passing on 3/4/1993 was followed the next day by Ellen Shine.

I think I'll pose another line of questions on actual statistics of people on board and the number of victims, survivors etc.

thankyou Phil and Shelley for the info.It strikes me that quite a number of passengers died in the years just after the sinking (1912 - 1919 ) maybe they were the ones that were most effected by the tradegy ?? and never quite got over it, and never managed to get on with there lives.

I agree with Michael- would make a nice ET research reference page. Lulu Drew is buried about 3 miles from my house in Ashaway, R.I. She spent her last years in the Watch Hill nursing home. She remarried Richard Opie who was not too thrilled with Marshall. So he spent a lot of time with his Uncle Henry Christian on Long Island. Marshall's Dad was a stonecarver from Southold, near Greenport L.I. New York. He had a workshop there and became a widower shortly after Marshall's birth- which is why Aunt Lu helped to raise him. William Drew carved his brother, James Vivian Drew's stone-roses and lilies- of Westerly granite- the one side tells of his brother's fate (the body was not found) and the other side has OPIE on it. Lu's second husband is buried there. Marshall's ashes are buried in River Bend Westerly -TI purchased his stone-it says Marshall Drew- Friend, artist -teacher-and at the bottom it has a profile of the ship and the words-survivor, RMS Titanic. His name is done in German fractur- a copy of his own calligraphy . He was quite a guy.

Hi Mark,

Sorry to be a bit late in writing to thank you for posting that informative and comprehensive list. Don't worry about having too much time on your hands - I've been keeping a list like this for years!

I wanted to let you know that I believe you missed Orian Davidson Hickson's passing in 1979. She was the only first-class survivor to die during that year. I only caught this because I am currently working on her biography for a journalist who is working on the Canadian passengers.

On the subject of survivors who passed away on the same date - I believe Quartermaster George Thomas Rowe and first-class survivor Georgette Mattei died in England on 14 February 1974.

Also, second-class passenger Nan Harper Pont died in Glasgow, Scotland, on 10 April 1986.

More grist for the mill....

Hope this helps.

I went back through a spreadsheet I've created over the years which lists the deaths of the survivors in order--by my count it looks like at least 35 of the Titanic survivors had died prior to 1920. Seems sad that they would go through such an ordeal, only to live such a short time thereafter.

Mark, another minor correction: Irish passenger Nora Keane died in 1944 instead of 1945.
