More than a century has sailed by since the luxury steamship RMS Titanic met its catastrophic end in the North Atlantic, plunging two miles to the ocean floor after sideswiping an iceberg during its maiden voyage. Instead of the intended port of New York, a deep-sea grave became the final destination for the pride of the White Star Line in the early hours of April 15, 1912. More than 1,500 people lost their lives in the disaster. In the decades since her demise, Titanic has inspired countless books and several films while continuing to make headlines, particularly since the 1985 discovery of her resting place off the coast of Newfoundland. Discover what happened on that fateful night and learn about the local people who were on board, including one buried very near to Bourne Hall.
