HI. Sorry, I totally missed this thread.
How did your family make it over too Australia? your mother was English? traveling on Titanic to America for a holiday or American traveling back to America ? Officer's Lowes grandson lives here too in Australia.
Did your mother speak about the disaster to you,she was at the age of remembering, though, I would understand why If she did not. Many never liked speaking about that horrible night, such as Harold MacBride and many more.
I had seen documentaries on telly and I recall your mother was interviewed with your mother and her siblings and grandparents picture in the background.
