Body # 326 described as found with a "Steward's White coat" were Steward the only ones to wear White coats? Also described as wearing "light Check Overalls". Wouldn't overalls be worn by engineering crew?

If his age was indeed 50 as estimated-or near it: although several stewards were in their early-mid forties-and one was 60(!) there are at least 3 several possibilities for Number 326 ID:
H.R. Baxter age 51 at https://www.encyclopedia-titanica.org/titanic-biography/harry-ross-baxter.html
G.H. Brewster age 48 at https://www.encyclopedia-titanica.org/titanic-biography/george-brewster.html
L.Owen age 49 at https://www.encyclopedia-titanica.org/titanic-biography/lewis-owen.html

Steward B. H. Webb was 50-but also had a mustache and a full head of hair-wearas # 326 is described as "balding" and no mustache is noted on him.

From the clothing, most likely a kitchen hand. But don't place too much reliance on the estimated age. This was one of the last bodies recovered after several weeks, and by that time it was often hard to tell. The next body found, for instance, (no 327) was estimated as aged 38-40 but was actually 21.
