In the official list of second-class passengers appear the names of 'Mr. Edward Beane' and 'Mrs. Ethel Beane.' We learn upon inquiry that these are a married couple of Norwich parentage. Mr. Edward Beane is a son of Mr. George Beane, an employee of the Anchor Brewery (Messrs. Bullard & Sons) and his wife, Ethel, is a daughter of Mr. G. Clarke, another employee of Messrs. Bullards. Young Beane who is now about thirty-two years of age, went out to America a few years ago and obtained employment in the building trade. From time to time he returned to Norwich, and on one of these visits he became engaged to Miss Clarke who was employed in the bar of the 'Lord Nelson,' one of Messrs. Bullards' houses on the Dereham Road. About three weeks ago he again came to Norwich from across the Atlantic to claim her as his bride. A few days of the honeymoon they spent in Norwich, and then through a local agent they booked their passages on the Titanic. We are glad to learn that last evening Mr. Bardwell of Norwich, emigration agent, received an official intimation that Mr. and Mrs. Beane were among the survivors on the Carpathia. Mr. Clarke, father of Mrs. Beane, called at this office and was much relieved at hearing the good news. The names appear on the official list.
