Mr J. Gordon, 29, was born in Edinburgh. He was taken on as a substitute for a crewman that did not sail with the ship.
When he signed on to the Titanic on 10th April, 1912, he gave his local address as the Sailors' Home, (Southampton). His last ship had been the Oceanic. As a trimmer he received monthly wages of £5 10s.
Mr Gordon died in the sinking. His body, if recovered, was never identified.
