The book "Guide to the Crew of Titanic" By Günter Bäbler lists William Barnett Bedford as "assistant rotisseur". His age is given as 31. Another website lists his birthday as May 19, 1880. The Belford interviewed by the newspaper was 92 in 1962, making him 42 years old in 1912. But he wouldn't have been the first crewman to be listed under a fictitious name and certainly not the only one on the Titanic to have shaved years off his true age. The answer may lie in correspondence between Walter Lord and the man he believed to be the Titanic crewman.Good article. With that and what George posted above there is somewhat of a mystery there. I wonder if he assumed the identity. His bio here says he was was a fake but that's about all. Does anyone know if he had relatives that backed up his story? He's not the only person who claimed to be on Titanic as most of you all know. Same today with grifters that claimed to be in the towers on 9-11. There's been many that's been busted.
