Gloucester Citizen

Among the Titanic victims was Mr. H. P. Hodges, of The Cotswolds, Highfield Lane, Southampton, who is an elder brother of Mr. R. Hodges, of Melcombe, Vicarage Road, Gloucester, one of the staff at Hatherley Road Council Schools. Mr. Hodges, who was a music seller, was well-known in Gloucester, and had been educated at Tewksbury Grammar School.

He was among the second class passengers on the Titanic, having gone on a visit to relatives in America. For some time he had intended crossing the Atlantic, and he would have gone some weeks ago had not the coal strike unfortunately prevented him. His name has not appeared in the lists of those saved, and there is all too good cause to fear that Mr. Hodges was one of those gallant men who stood aside to await imminent death whilst women and children took their places in the boats. If such is the case, Mr. Hodges leaves a widow and eight children, two of whom are married.
