WALTER JAMES BROWN was 39 [sic] years old when he joined the crew of the Titanic as a First Class Saloon Steward. Before joining The White Star Lines, Brown worked for his older brother, William, in his grocery store on Moor Street in Ormskirk. Walter also painted ceramics and porcelain for Royal Doulton (a vase which he painted as a christening present is still in the family). Having just transferred over from the Olympic, Brown was working his way across to America to pay for his passage. Sadly, he did not survive.
