MILLOM'S CONNECTION WITH THE TITANIC DISASTER

Whitehaven News

THE widespread effects of the Titanic disaster is evidenced by the fact that Mrs. Beck of Cambridge Street, Millom, (Cumberland) had a relative aboard the ill-fated vessel.
Mrs. Meanwell, first cousin of Mrs. Beck, who was proceeding on the Titanic to join her daughter in America. She had often crossed the Atlantic previously, and according to a letter dispatched to Mrs. Beck from Queenstown, was delighted with the new gigantic vessel.
In her views, nothing approaching the accommodation had been experienced in any of the previous journeys, and nothing but a very pleasant voyage was anticipated.
There appears to be little hope that Mrs. Meanwell had escaped the fate which befell so many of the Titanic passengers, as her name does not appear, so far, amongst those who have been saved.
