Hi RootsChat,

just as a matter of interest  - my grandfather worked at the Belfast Shipyard and actually worked on the Titanic as an apprentice driller. I have his apprenticeship paper - it cost two pounds sterling for him to be indentured.

I never knew him but have a great interest in the Titanic because of the family stories.

Hope he didn't make a mistake with that drill ::)
Cheers
Aaron ;D

My Great-Grandfather worked on the building of the Titanic too. The only story I know if it is that often at lunch time a mob would walk around and throw all the Catholics into the water.

Click here to read the fascinating story of a bottle of holy water which belonged to Jerome Bourke, of Glanmire, Co. Cork. Jerome was amongst those who drowned when the Titanic sank.
