Miss Beatrice Irene Sandström

Miss Beatrice Irene Sandström, 1½, was born 9 August 1910, the daughter of Hjalmar Sandström (died 1925) and Agnes Sandström and sister of Marguerite. They boarded the Titanic at Southampton as third class passengers.

In later years she remembered nothing about the trip and could only tell what other people had told her, but once said that when she was a child she used to say: "Look, the moon is falling down", perhaps recalling the rockets fired as the ship went down.

She lived in Motala, Östergötland, Sweden and died 3 September 1995.
