List of crew members on board RMS Titanic

List of crew members on board RMS Titanic

work-in-progress list of crew aboard the RMS "Titanic" on its final voyage. [cite web|url=|title=Titanic Crew List|publisher=Encyclopedia Titanica|accessdate=2007-07-31] A name in "italics" denotes a person who was saved.

Crew members' names that are bolded indicates a middle name that the person was generally known by. A person generally referred to by a nickname is in quotes, while an alias is put into parenthesis.

Survivors were rescued from the lifeboats by the RMS "Carpathia". Of the 711 passengers and crew rescued from the RMS "Titanic", one passenger died in a lifeboat during the night, and another five died on board the "Carpathia" and were buried at sea. Several ships sailed to the disaster area to recover victims' bodies. Numbers 324 and 325 were unused, and the six passengers buried at sea by the "Carpathia" also went unnumbered. [cite web|url=|title= RMS Titanic: List of Bodies and Disposition of Same|publisher=Nova Scotia Archives and Records Management |accessdate=2008-03-03] The three bodies recovered by the RMS "Oceanic", numbers 331, 332 and 333, were occupants of Collapsible A, which was swamped in the last moments of the sinking. Several people managed to reach the boat, although some died during the night. When Fifth Officer Harold Lowe rescued the survivors of Collapsible A, he left three bodies in the boat: Thomas Beattie, a first-class passenger, and two crew members, a fireman and a seaman. Collapsible A, with the three bodies still inside, was discovered over 200 miles from the site of the sinking by the Oceanic about a month later. [ [ "TITANIC - A Voyage of Discovery"] ]

The superscript next to the body number indicates the recovery vessel that picked up the body.
*MB - CS "Mackay-Bennett" (bodies 1-306)
*M - CS "Minia" (bodies 307-323)
*MM - CGS "Montmagny" (bodies 326-329)
*A - SS "Algerine" (body 330)
*O - RMS "Oceanic" (bodies 331-333)
*I - SS "Ilford" (body 334)
*OT - SS "Ottowa" (body 335)

Upon recovery, the bodies of 160 identified and unidentified victims of the sinking were brought back to Halifax, Nova Scotia to be buried. 129 were taken to the non-denominational Fairview Lawn Cemetery; twenty-nine were buried in the Roman Catholic Mount Olivet Cemetery, and ten were taken to the Jewish Baron de Hirsch Cemetery. The bodies of the remaining recovered victims were either delivered to family members or buried at sea.

Victualling crew

Guarantee group

Though the nine-member guarantee group were given passenger accommodation, they were also regarded as members of the crew. Headed by the ship's designer, Thomas Andrews, the group's responsibility was to accompany the ship on her maiden voyage to oversee any unfinished work or find and fix any problems that might arise during the voyage.

hip's orchestra

The ship's eight-member orchestra travelled as second-class passengers, and were not on the payroll of the White Star Line. Until the night of sinking, the orchestra performed as two separate entities: a quintet let by the bandleader, Wallace Hartley, that played at teatime, after-dinner concerts, and Sunday services, among other things; and the violin, cello and piano trio of Roger Bricoux, George Krins and Theodore Brailey, that played at the Á La Carte Restaurant and the Café Parisien.
