Facts About Lifeboat 11

  • Edith Rosenbaum was saved. She left the Titanic in Lifeboat 11 at 01:35. Lifeboat 11 was the most crowded, with seventy people. René Harris could have been saved in one of the first lifeboats, but she refused to leave without her husband.
  • Sitting in lifeboat 11 as it's about to be lowered, stewardess Annie Martin can see the ship's band playing at the top of the staircase on Adeck, where there is a Steinway upright piano. Some are smoking and keeping time by stamping their feet.
  • After helping to load and launch at least two more lifeboats, First Officer Murdoch took Wheelton by the arm and told him to go to A Deck, where Lifeboat 11 was being loaded. Lifeboat 11 was the sixth boat lowered on the starboard side.
  • It is impossible to determine in which lifeboat every Titanic survivor escaped, because the evidence is often contradictory. ... In fact, of the boats launched from that side, only Lifeboat 11 and Collapsible C contained a majority of women.
  • As she continued to protest, an officer decided the matter by forcing her into a lifeboat. Twelve-year-old Ruth Becker watched her younger brother and sister get loaded into boat No. 11. The crew suddenly began to lower the boat.

Legend For Survivor or Lost Passengers and Crew Members

  • LB-# or A-D - Survivor on Lifeboat 1-16 or Collapsible Lifeboat A-D
  • P-BNR - Perished, Body Not Recovered or Body Not Identified
  • MB – CS Mackay-Bennett (bodies 1–306)
  • M – CS Minia (bodies 307–323)
  • MM – CGS Montmagny (bodies 326–329)

  • O – RMS Oceanic (bodies 331–333)
  • I – SS Ilford (body 334)
  • OT – SS Ottawa (body 335)

Numbers 324 and 325 were unused, and the six bodies buried at sea by the Carpathia also went unnumbered. Several recovered bodies were unidentifiable and thus not all numbers are matched with a person.

Upon recovery, the bodies of 209 identified and unidentified victims of the sinking were brought to Halifax, Nova Scotia. Of those, 121 were taken to the non-denominational Fairview Lawn Cemetery, 59 were repatriated, 19 were buried in the Roman Catholic Mount Olivet Cemetery, and 10 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.
