Hudson Trevor Allison

Master Hudson Trevor Allison, 11m, was born on 7 May 1911 in Westmount, Quebec.  Shortly after Trevor was born, the Allison family travelled to England for business purposes, and it was in England that young Trevor was baptised.

He travelled on the Titanic with his father Hudson Allison his mother Bess Allison and sister Loraine. He was also accompanied by a nurse Alice Cleaver.

Alice Cleaver rescued Trevor in lifeboat 11. but it is unclear if Bess and Hudson knew that he had been taken off the ship.  The couple and their daughter Loraine all died in the sinking.

After the sinking, baby Trevor returned home to Canada, where he would be raised by his aunt and uncle, George and Lillian Allison.

Trevor died on 7 August 1929 at the age of 18 in Maine, USA of ptomaine poisoning and was buried beside his father in Chesterville, Ontario.
