Titanic Lifeboat No. 3

Titanic lifeboat 3. The third boat to be lowered on the starboard side. Officer Murdoch had just lowered boats 7 and 5 and directed the lowering of No. 3. Passengers calmly entered the boat, men and women, and when no more were around, about ten stokers entered the boat which was then lowered away. Henry Sleeper Harper brought his small dog with him. Thomas Cardeza entered the boat with his valet, his mother and her maid. Later, it was rumoured that he had dressed up as a sailor to be rescued (untrue). Mrs. Cardeza was quoted as having seen Ismay choosing the lifeboat crew for the boat in which he, Ismay, escaped, and Mr. Cardeza allegedly was one of those. Again, untrue.

Boat 3 was lowered with about 40 people in it; Thomas Cardeza counted 38 heads, not including those on the floor, Mrs. Spedden thought there were 40, including 10 or 12 stokers, Wilfred Seward of the crew estimated 50, George Moore, who was in charge of the boat, said 32 and Elizabeth Shutes thought there were 36.

It seems likely that boat 3 was lowered with 36 - 38 people in it and it was possibly the fifth or sixth boat to reach the Carpathia.
