George Frederick Charles Talbot

George Frederick Charles Talbot was born in Southampton, Hampshire, England on 26 December 1891. He was the first child of Alfred George Talbot (1870-1950) and Ellen Ada Ockleford (1874-1961).

George first appears on the 1901 census living at 33 Firgrove Road, Southampton. His father is described as a ship's fireman and also present are his younger siblings William (b. 1894) and Ada Elizabeth (b. 1898). By the time of the 1911 census the family have relocated to 4 Alpha Villas, Lemon Road, Millbrook, Shirley, Southampton. George is described as an unemplyed fitter's assistant.

When he signed-on to the Titanic, on 6 April 1912, he gave the same address he was living at on the 1911 census. His last ship had been the Oceanic. As a third class steward he received monthly wages of £3 15s.

Talbot died in the sinking. His body was recovered by the Mackay-Bennett (#150) and was buried at Fairview Lawn Cemetery, Halifax, Nova Scotia on 8 May 1912.
