If you've contributed and I've forgotten to mention you, please contact me to amend the error. References: By now I've realized that with so many different sources for every single passenger and crew aboard the Lusitania, it's absolutely impossible for me to keep track of every book and every newspaper that I've ever read.  Of course, I still acknowledge the source on the page most relevant to the source, but I don't think I can remember them all to jot them down on this page.  So for now, this page is just a sampler.

The Lusitania's Passengers and Crew, May 7, 1915 The following is a compilation of data gathered from The New York Times, starting on the day after the Lusitania sank. The Lusitania left New York after 12 p.m. on Saturday, May 1, 1915. She was expected to arrive in Liverpool by Saturday, May 8. Some passengers were transferred from the Cameronia, a ship taken over by the British Government, as it was about to sail from New York on Saturday, the first of May. The last-minute transfers delayed the Lusitania’s departure by 2 ½ hours. This information about the Cameronia is contradicted by Simpson’s book, which said the passengers came over from the S.S. Queen Margaret the night before the Lusitania sailed, However, the information about the Cameronia is supported by Ballard’s book. The New York Times, Saturday, 8 May 1915, page 4. Article entitled “Complete List of Passengers on Lost Lusitania and of The Known Members of Her Crew”. The total number of persons on board was 1,918, of whom 1,253 were passengers and 665 were members of the crew, according to the headlines of the article on page 4. However, the descriptive paragraph before the list of officers and crew said, “Of the 630 members of the crew of the Lusitania eighty-three were assigned to the deck, these including the captain and his staff, 307 were in the engineering force, and 240 were in the stewards’ department.” (Through all that I have read about the Lusitania’s stats for lives lost or saved, the numbers rarely agree from article to article. Perhaps the true figures from that tragedy will never be known. It is possible that someone’s name may have slipped through the cracks. A few did cancel at the last minute and yet their names appear on the list of passengers as though they had in fact sailed. All it takes is an error of one to make the stats inaccurate.) Data specific to some of the more prominent passengers is scattered throughout the first five or six pages of each edition of the newspaper. The New York Times, Sunday, 9 May 1915 The Sunday’s paper contained a list of survivors among the passengers and crew, which has proved to be incomplete and in places, incorrect. Throughout the first 5-6 pages of the paper are articles about the Lusitania and its passengers, especially those who were prominent or from a larger city. These articles are quoted herein. Page 6 of the Sunday paper contained a list of the missing and probable dead. This list of the lost specified only first and second cabin. Steerage and crew not included. Some people ended up on both lists, living and dead! The New York Times, Monday, 10 May 1915 Page 1 carried a list of 23 identified American dead 81 survivors 102 American cabin passengers lost (bodies cannot be located) The list of 102 lost bodies included only First Class and Second Cabin passengers. Third class not included. Crew not included. Page 5 has a revised list of survivors. (Did you notice these numbers add up to 206?) The New York Times, Tuesday, 11 May 1915 A list on page 2 gives the condition of the injured treated at a hospital in Queenstown. Sixteen members of the crew were buried in a common grave with the unknown dead. The presence of so many children on the Lusitania was due to the fact that Canadian women were going to England to join relatives while their military husbands were fighting at the front. Ninety-two of the dead were buried in a cemetery two miles outside of Queenstown, May 10, 1915. Services were held in both Catholic and Protestant Churches. Photographers had taken pictures of the unidentified dead in the morgue. Many children and little babies were still in the morgues awaiting burial in a mass grave. Page 5 showed a list of survivors as well as the identified American dead: 86 American survivors 26 American identified dead 76 Americans still missing (Now the numbers add up to 188 total Americans on board!) The Lusitania carried life boats and rafts sufficient to accommodate 2,605 persons. These included 22 life boats which carried 68 persons each; 20 Chambers collapsible boats carrying 54 each; 12 McLean-Chambers collapsible boats with a capacity of 49 each; 2 Henderson collapsible boats, carrying 43 each, and 14 life rafts, with capacities varying from 20 to 40 each. There were also nearly 3,000 life preservers on board. “The life-saving apparatus is examined before every voyage in Liverpool by the Board of Trade officials when the boats are lowered into the water and the life jackets placed on deck for inspection.” A memorial service was held in the New York City Cathedral of St. John the Divine, on Sunday, May 23, at 11 A. M., with an address by Dean Grosvenor. Seven Days to Disaster:  The Sinking of the Lusitania by Des Hickey and Gus Smith G. P. Putnam’s Sons 200 Madison Avenue New York, New York 10016 ISBN 0-399-12699-6 1981 Out of print but old copies can be found at the Barnes and Noble website Page 281:154 bodies were buried in 3 graves in the Old Church Cemetery two miles out of Queenstown. “By Cunard’s reckoning that Monday afternoon 1,150 passengers and crew were dead and 767 had been saved.” (Total: 1,917 souls) Page 317: “The official analysis of missing and survivors issued by the Cunard Steamship Company in 1 March 1916, listed 1,195 missing (178 first class, 374 second and 239 third and 404 crew members) and 764 survivors (113 first class, 227 second and 134 third, and 290 crew members).” (Total: 1,959 souls) The Cove was given the name Queenstown in 1849 in honor of a visit by Queen Victoria. It was changed to Cobh in 1922 at the formation of the Republic of Ireland. Cobh is pronounced “cove”. The Mayor of New York City established a relief fund for Lusitania victims. Frank A. Vanderlip was the Treasurer of the committee. By Thursday, May 27, 1915, $14,664.50 had been pledged. The Lusitania by Colin Simpson Little, Brown and Company-Boston Copyright 1972 ISBN=0-316-79178-4 Simpson and Hickey/Smith seem to have used the same sources with Simpson giving a better view of the political situation before the ship sails. Page 110: 70 passengers and 200 tons of cargo were transferred over to the Lusitania from the S. S. Queen Margaret. The 70 passengers were 67 men, 2 women, one with a baby. They were accommodated on E deck. It appears none of them survived. [No mention here of the Cameronia as had been described in the newspapers.] The transfer was completed by 9 P.M., Friday, April 30. This information about the Queen Margaret is not mentioned elsewhere. Exploring the Lusitania by Robert D. Ballard with Spencer Densmore Warner Books, Inc.- New York Copyright 1995 ISBN=0-446-51851-4 No mention of the Queen Margaret in this book but he does describe the Cameronia transfer. On page 10, the wreck is described as being 11.2 miles south of the Old Head of Kinsale in 295 feet of water, where 1,195 passengers and crew died. Per page 13, Of 1,959 passengers and crew only 764 survived. Of those 123 were Americans. Per page 24, the last crossing was the 202nd crossing for the Lusitania. 123 was called an “unusually large number of American citizens.” Per page 37, 291 first-class passengers with a 552 capacity; 601 second-cabin passengers with facilities designed for 460; 373 steerage passengers in a space intended for 1,186. Per page 45, the cost of a Regal Suite was $4,000, one way. A Regal Suite consisted of 2 bedrooms, a parlor, a bathroom, plus dining room and pantry for private dining. See also, the Irish Titanic Historical Society Two other sources searched were microfilms from the LDS Family History Center: microfilm #1656877, Liverpool Worthies, volume 9-17, 1910-1921 and microfilm #1656874, Newspaper cuttings, Liverpool obituary notices, 1909-1916. In the first of these two, there was no mention of the Lusitania from May, 1915 to May, 1916. The second film was, regrettably, extremely difficult to read. The newspaper clippings were very blurry and only small places were legible. The Lusitania was mentioned in a few articles but the details could not be deciphered. This microfilm contained clips from The Liverpool Echo, Evening Express, Journal of Commerce, Post and Mercury. Page 84 of the scrapbook of obits contained an article entitled “Lusitania Victims”. This was in the May 15, 1915,, Liverpool Post and Mercury. Also on this page, was reference to the funeral of Captain Anderson and Mr. J. McCubbin.. Pages 92 and 108 also referred to the Lusitania. An ink stamp on page 95 of the latter microfilm read “Liverpool Public Library”. Perhaps someone reading this will have access to this book in the Liverpool Library and will help to clarify the references. One other source was Who's Who in America, 1897-1942 The list of interments in Old Church cemetery, Cobh, County Cork, Ireland , which was sent to me by Janet Dare has been included here. Thank you, Janet. I did not include the numerous "unidentified" that appeared on the list. "Church records indicate a total of 169 Lusitania victims currently interred at the Old Church Cemetery, Cobh, Ireland. Data courtesy Luke Cassidy and Geoff Whitfield. Database by NJRay." Another source: :Roll of Merchant Navy Personnel lost in the Sinking of the Cunard Passenger Vessel Lusitania on 7th May 1915, off the Old Head of Kinsale, SW Ireland. The person who sent it is W.D.Roberts, whose e-mail address I can no longer locate via AOL. So, if Roberts, you see this, please send another e=mail so I can thank you and include your e-mail address if you like so others can contact you if so desired. Thank you anyway for sending the information. Some of the names I already knew from the newspaper articles. The Roll includes only those lost, not the survivors, so there are still more names out there to obtain, I am sure. Does anyone have a list of crew survivors they would like to see included here? One last note: The information given here is by no means all that I found or all that is mentioned in the sources listed. Time and again, I had to remind myself that the goal here was not to retell history but point out information that would be of use to a family historian and a person looking to make connections from his/her family to those on board the ship the day it went down. Anecdotes that would not further the goal of genealogy have been omitted. Well, okay, there are a few!
