Titanic Graves, Old Cemetery

 

The people of Southampton were deeply affected by the sinking of the Titanic on April 15th 1912. According to the Hampshire Chronicle on 20 April 1912, almost 1,000 local families were directly affected. Almost every street in the Chapel district of the town lost more than one resident and over 500 households lost a member..

No casualties from the Titanic are buried here, but 42 are mentioned on family graves.

7 survivors died in Southampton and are buried here.

2 other graves are of note; that of the Mayor of Southampton Henry Bowyer who started a fund for the dependents of the casualties, and Maud Newman, who visited these families to ensure their well-being.

A vast amount of information on the Titanic disaster is available on the web site
Encyclopedia Titanica
