Dear Kathleen hope one of your many readers will be able to help, I was told by my grandmother that her father Francis Henry Smith was due to sail on the titanic, but he was also a skipper on a yacht for Lord Ingersol and he was required to sail for him about that time (lucky escape). But he gave his ticket to his brother William Smith (not certain of the name ) who sailed and died on the Titanic. They were both from the Isle of Wight and they both had a part in the building of the Titanic as Francis was a boat builder. As i said this is all hearsay so i would be grateful if anybody had any information. P.S GREAT WEB SITE. From: “gary wilson”
