I would have thought that there would have been more persons boarding at Queenstown than at Cherbourg instead of the other way around , which was Cherbourg 274, Queenstown 120.Just some of those " I have often wondered about that " things.
How many passengers boarded at each port of call on the westbound voyage of Titanic ?
Southampton - 922
Cherbourg - 274
Queenstown - 120
Also another question.
Could a passenger purchase a round trip ticket at Cherbourg or Queenstown to return to those port s ?
Would Titanic have returned only to Southampton ?
Or just the reverse of westbound....that is....stops at Queenstown, Cherbourg , Southampton in that order ?
If not, how would they manage to return to their home port ?
I have read that some who boarded at Southampton only traveled as far as Cherbourg and got off there ?
Also only to Queenstown ? Of course there was Father Browne in that case.
There was also a story that an American passenger had offered to buy Father Browne a round trip ticket to New York.
When he wired his Uncle (whom I believe was a Bishop ?) he got an emphatic reply . :
" No ! Get off that ship ! "
But as Harry Peach asked, " Why ? "
