Titanic continues to capture the popular imagination however much of that focus is on the disparity between the survival rates of the first and third class passengers and the loss of the rich and famous on board. Often overlooked are the crew of the Titanic of whom four out of five lost their lives in the disaster. James Cronan and Janet Dempsey have used the original Titanic crew records held at the National Archives to attempt to redress this balance, not only looking at the crew who lost their lives but also following the fate of those who survived and in many cases actually carried on a career at sea.

This definitive reference work includes a listing of all Titanic’s crew, recording those who were lost and saved; a gallery of unique previously unseen photographs of Titanic crew survivors; five in depth case studies including Captain E.J.Smith, Violet Jessop and Frederick Woodford; an indepth analysis of the crew list and guidance on how to undertake research with regards to Merchant Navy officers and seamen in the early twentieth century.
