RMS Titanic | Titanic Pages

Welcome aboard Titanic Pages – Titanic History Website, a growing ‘sister website’ of the White Star Line History Website (White Star History).

RMS Titanic, White Star Line’s most famous and tragic ship, was launched on 31st May 1911 at Harland and Wolff, Belfast. At the time of her completion, Titanic was the world’s largest man-made moving object and amongst the most luxurious of ships to have ever been constructed.

On 10th April 1912, Titanic departed Southampton for her maiden voyage to New York. After having left land behind for the last time, Titanic had onboard 2208 people, including rich and famous passengers, and passengers travelling in search of a better life.

On the fourth night of the voyage, Titanic struck an Iceberg and sank within just two hours and forty minutes. Only 712 of the 2208 people survived. The Titanic Pages tells the story of the ship and the people aboard on that fateful night.

Out of sight of the first class passenger's notable parts of the ship included 'Scotland Road' a long passageway used by both the third class passengers and the ship's crew, and far below deck Titanic's massive boilers would have been found. Amongst the items stored in Titanic's cargo hold there was even a car.

During the sinking 18 of Titanic's 20 lifeboats were successfully - although mostly under filled with people - lowered away from the ship; with time having run out to launch them, the other two floated off the ship, where they become the Saviour of a few of the last remaining aboard who would survive Titanic. The lifeboats section of the website includes pages about most of the boats.

After the sinking a number of memorials (links to a growing list of pages about Titanic memorials) were constructed to commemorate the Titanic disaster.
