Steward No19 was steward in A Night to Remember.


The steward is seen first arguing with a Scottish passenger to put on his lifejacket. He then tells the Third Class passengers that they will all be told when to go up, once the Steerage passengers begin to relies that the Titanic is listing.

As panic begins to build and the passengers being to push past the stewards, the steward gets more assistance to hold the passengers back until an order from Chief Officer Wilde telling them to bring the women and children up to the boat deck, but the male passengers push pass the stewards and begin to rush towards the boat deck.

Even though his fate isn't shown, it is believed the steward dies in the sinking.


His demeanor shows that he is an angry person who gets into an argument with the Scottish passenger about putting on his lifejacket and would rather keep the Steerage back than get them to the boat deck while there are still boats on deck.

Historical accuracyEdit

His behavior is wrong, he ordered people to put on their lifejackets but orders them back. In reality, the Steerage passengers were already on the aft well deck during the sinking; while others stayed in the General Room or the Third Class Smoking Room.

Survivors in Third Class claimed it was the sailors who were hindering their escape to the boat deck, while the stewards had helped them with their lifejackets or showed them which corridor to take to get to the boats.
