Were any of these suicides directly related to the sinking of "Titanic", and perhaps "What I didn't do and should have done", or survivors guilt?
I recently saw a drawing of the ship, something rather modern, but depicting the liner in extremis. It conveyed very clearly how huge that hull was in reality. Watching it slowly filling and descending into the dark sea would have made an enormous psychological impact on anyone.

I just discovered right here on ET some new information that was not there about a year or so ago and is relevant to this thread.

Wiljo (Viljo) Hamalainen was just over a year old when he survived the Titanic sinking with his mother Anna. They were rescued on Lifeboat #4.

Sadly, Viljo died less than 2 years later, 2 weeks after his 3rd birthday. Cause of death listed as endocarditis.
