Another Titanic Victim

Southport's Duke Street Cemetery contains a gravestone commemorating the death of a Titanic crewman. James Walpole is well-documented in the Encyclopedia Titanica. He had worked for the White Star Line for thirty years. He had previously served on the Brittanic, Adriatic, Majestic and Celtic and Olympic. On the Titanic's maiden voyage, he was Chief Pantryman. He died in the sinking. His body, if recovered, was never identified.
