Helen Loraine Allison

Miss Helen Loraine Allison, 2, was born June 5, 1909. She was travelling with her father Hudson Allison, her mother Bess and brother Trevor .

After the collision Trevor went missing with his nurse Alice Cleaver . When the Allisons realized that Alice Cleaver and baby Trevor were unaccounted for, they resolved that they would not leave the Titanic until after Trevor was found, nor would they be parted from little Loraine, they were last seen standing together, smiling, on the promenade deck.

Loraine Allison was the only child in first and second class to die (53 of 76 children in third-class perished). Her body was never found.
