Passengers: There were approximately 2207 people on Board
the Titanic, unfortunately, there is no exact record of everyone that
was on board. All these lists
were written by hand, and copies were being prepared by several different
people. With all the last minute bookings and cancellations,
in addition to those that missed the ship, it is impossible to tell
exactly how many people were on the Titanic.
