Thomas Andrews, the man who designed Titanic and worked for Harland and Wolff. He was born February 7th 1873 and was 39 at the time of the sinking. He was a man of great dignity and honor, who built a strong ship...a ship that lasted an hour more than he predicted her to live. He died that night, on the ship he created.
West, Edwy Arthur, 36. 2nd Class, Ada Mary, 33.Constance Miriam, 4. and Barbara Joyce, 10 months. Ada later recalled, “We were all asleep when the collision took place, but were only jolted in our berths – my husband and children not even being awakened, and it was only the hurrying of passengers outside the cabin that caused alarm. After seeing us safely into the lifeboat (Boat 10) Arthur returned to the cabin for a thermos of hot milk and with a farewell, returned to the deck of the ship.”
The story of Pastor John Harper, who gave up the opportunity to enter a lifeboat and, instead, spent the last three hours of his life sharing the Gospel with his fellow Titanic victims. He died in the freezing water, still speaking Scripture to the people nearby.
