I may be wrong, but I believe third-class passenger Alfred Rush celebrated a birthday on April 14th -- turning 16. At this age he considered himself a man and stayed back with Frank Goldsmith and Thomas Theobald and went down with the ship.

There were a few passengers who celebrated a birthday during their Titanic voyage. I don't have the info at the moment, but if track it down I'll be sure to post it.

I remember reading about an Irishman who turned thirty-seven that day. His name escapes me at the moment, but maybe someone knows who I'm talking about.

Hi Brandon,

You're thinking of 1st class passenger Edward Pomeroy Colley. Sadly he did not live to celebrate the occasion.

Regards,
Ben

I have too say one thing about what Ian Stuart Yardley said.
The Andersson girls was not twins, one of them was born April 16 1900, and the other the same date year 1902.
