I've read several items on this site about the Guarantee Group from Harland & Wolff, a group of nine men from the shipbuilding firm led by Thomas Andrews. Andrews is the only one of them I've even heard that much about. Who were these guys? Did they report directly to Thomas Andrews? Or were they working independently? Or, in the case of the apprentices, under someone on board the ship? I also note that every one of them died. Could the other eight have made the decision to go down with the ship, as Thomas Andrews did? And could they have had any contact with him after the collision during those last 2 hours and 40 minutes?
