The Rescue of the Third Class on the Titanic

David Gleicher

Liverpool University Press

This chapter studies the period 1:00 to 1:40am, seeking to determine when the lifeboats left the Titanic, where the third class passengers were at the time, and which routes they were taking in order to evacuate. It provides several route diagrams; a table noting lifeboat departures and passenger occupancy by class and gender; and an analysis of the testimonies from the British and American inquiries. It concludes that there is little evidence of the routes taken by third class to the lifeboats, in part due to the lack of third class testimonials, but that their evident presence in these lifeboats suggests some discovered alternate routes through the first class that ensured their safety.
