Mr Lawrence Doyle was reportedly born in Co Wexford, Ireland around 1885 but his exact familial background has yet to be established.
His first working sea voyage was as a trimmer aboard Carmania in April 1907; he was discharged on 2 May and gave his address as 17 Bleuehuin (?) Street. He was shown rejoining the same ship the next day, by now giving his address as 70 Lennon Street.
By 15 January 1909, when he signed on to Empress of Britain as a fireman, Doyle was giving his address as 8 Wellington Street and indicated that prior to that he had served aboard Lucania1. Between then and 27 August 1909 when he rejoined Empress of Britain he had served aboard Lusitania. He rejoined Carmania on 22 October that year.
Doyle signed on for the maiden voyage of Titanic on 6 April 1912; he stated his local address as 10 Orchard Place, Southampton and his previous ship as the Majestic and as a fireman he could expect monthly wages of £6.
Lawrence Doyle died in the sinking and his body, if recovered, was never identified.
