Titanic Passenger List Online and Free


The original passengers list of Titanic is now available on the internet!

Fully digitised images of the RMS Titanic's original 34-page passenger list are now available for the very first time online.

Its addition completes the set of passengers lists for the ships leaving the UK furing the decade 1910-1919, recently added to the ancestorsonboard.com collection. These images are available only at http://www.findmypast.com/, and are presented in association with The National Archives.

The original Titanic passenger list records the names, port of departure, occupation, nationality, age, class of travel, destination and country of intended future permanent residence of all who sailed on its ill-fated maiden voyage in 1912. Usually it costs up to £3 to view a single passenger list image (subscription access is available), but for a limited time only visitors will be available to view, print, save and download the Titanic passenger list free of charge. That's £100 worth of free images for all our visitors.

Marking the 95th anniversary of the ship's tragic loss, the online release brings the original documents together for the first time online and in print, as there are no images of the originals published in any media elsewhere.
