Were there any other crew members that were on the Olympic when it collided with the Hawke? I have found these names:

Walter Williams
Katherine Gold
Violet Jessop
Ernest Farendon
Sarah Stap
George Kemish
and Chief Officer Henry Wilde

Were there any passengers on the Olympic at the time to, who were later transfered to Titanic?

The number could possibly be in the hundreds being that so many of Titanic's crew were Olympic veterans. Off hand, I can think of these people:
Sidney Daniels
Alexander Littlejohn
Isaac Maynard
John Priest
James Walpole
August Weikman
John Wesley Woodward
and of course Captain Smith

I recall several other survivor accounts where the interviewee mentioned they were also aboard Olympic during the Hawke collision, but darned if I remember who those people were at the moment.

Gentlemen,

There were over 200 of Titanic's crew present
for the Olympic-Hawke collision in September
of 1911. Is there a specific name you were
curious about Andrew?
Chris is 100 percent correct, all those he
mentioned were indeed on board.

Regards

Hallo Jennifer -

The crew agreements for the Olympic are archived at the Public Record Office (National Archives) at Kew, near London. BT 100/245 to BT 100/249 cover the 1911-1912 period you're interested in.

Hello Jennifer,

Having perused the crew roster for the
Olympic on the voyage which resulted in the
collision with the HMS Hawke, I am able to
report that Tom O'Connor was not among them.
Thanks to the generosity of my esteemed
friend and colleague Inger Sheil for supply-
ing me with the list, I have noted some 240
men and women, fully one quarter of the
crew that would 5 months later take the
maiden voyage of Titanic.
If you go to Kew, I would check the lists
for the Celtic, as this was his last ship
prior to Titanic, and more likely, as it
sailed from Liverpool.

Best Wishes and thanks for all you've shared.

Brian M
