Titanic relatives mark 105th anniversary in Belfast

Postby Andrew Clarkson » Sat Apr 15, 2017 7:26 am

More than 100 relatives of passengers who were on board the Titanic gathered in Belfast on Friday to mark the 105th anniversary of its sinking.

The event was held in Belfast's Titanic Centre, which is situated near the spot where the ship was built.

The Titanic sunk on 15 April 1912 during its maiden voyage. More than 1,500 people died.

The event was organised by the great-grandson of the man who was at the helm when the ship struck an iceberg.

Simon Medhurst, a long-time collector of Titanic memorabilia, said he only found out that he was related to Robert Hichens, one of the ship's quartermasters, after meeting his birth father in 2012.
