Last Titanic Survivor Dies At 97
Millvina Dean was nine weeks old when the liner sank after hitting an iceberg in the early hours of 15 April 1912, on its maiden voyage from Southampton.
The disaster resulted in the deaths of 1,517 people in the north Atlantic, largely due to a lack of lifeboats.
Miss Dean, who remembered nothing of the fateful journey, died on Sunday at the care home in Hampshire where she lived.
Her family had been travelling in third class to America, where they hoped to start a new life and open a tobacconist's shop in Kansas City.
