This chapter aims to delineate a timeline of events in order to provide an accurate account of the movement of third class passengers during the sinking. The timeline is broken down into 5 phases ranging between 11:40pm on the 14th April 1912 and 2:20am on the 15th. It explores these first two phases in detail, spanning 11:40pm and 1:00am, covering the initial impact and the evacuation attempts that followed. It includes tables detailing survival rates by class, gender, and region; survival by class, gender and age; survival of third class members by location of their quarters; figures detailing both the area of impact and damage; and the escape routes taken by third class passengers. By examining testimonies from the British Inquiry, it concludes that third class passengers took a difficult route the top deck due to misdirection from the ship’s authorities.
