The Titanic was the greatest shipwreck of the 20th century, a catastrophic event that has already passed into myth and legend. On the 10th April 1912 the new liner sailed from Southhampton, England with 2,208 passengers and crew, among them was a man from Scotter. Mr Henry (Harry) Bartman Faunthorpe was born in Scotter, Lincolnshire in 1880; he worked as a commercial salesman, living in Grimsby and later in Liverpool. He boarded the Titanic at Southampton as a second class passenger together with his mistress Elizabeth Anne Wilkinson who traveled as Mrs Faunthorpe. They carried ticket number 2926 bought for £26. Mr Faunthorpe tragically died in the sinking, along with 1496 people, his and many other bodies were later recovered by the MacKay Bennett.
