Mr George Ingram1 was born in Southampton, Hampshire, England on 28 September 1892.
He was the son of Henry Ingram (b. 1861) and Matilda Pitman (b. 1860), both Hampshire-natives who had married in Southampton in 1881.
One of ten children, all of who survived infancy, Ingram's siblings were: Florence (b. 1882), Amelia (b. 1884), Lydia (b.1886), Louisa (b. 1888), Henry Walter (b. 1890), Robert (b. 1894), William (b. 1897), Matilda (b. 1900) and Alice (b. 1904).

When he signed onto the Titanic Ingram gave his address as 18 Lower Canal Walk, Southampton2 and as a trimmer he could expect to receive wages of £5, 10s per month.
