The final casualty figures were 1201 men, women and children dead out of a total of 1962 persons onboard.The official figures of 1959 persons aboard and 1198 dead, obviously do not include the three Germans who were locked in the most comfortable cells now at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. To divide the figures again, of the 159 Americans on board, 128 had perished and of the 129 children aboard the Lusitania, ninety-four perished.Included in that figure were thirty-one infants out of a total of thirty-five on board. Only four were saved. We are grateful to Laura Dillman of uffield, CT., for contacting us.Laura has recently discovered that there are more surviving passenger lists for the Lusitania on the Ellis Island website. (You must register on the site before you can access the material). Laura was researching a Mr George Hendee, a regular transatlantic traveller, a snd she found that the fourth entry under his name shows a voyage on the Lusitania.There is a link from there to view the passenger list for that voyage.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE ONLY PASSENGER LIST KNOWN TO EXIST IN ENGLAND IS THAT FOR THE FINAL VOYAGE. YOU CAN OBTAIN PASSENGER INFORMATION FROM THE ELLIS SLAND WEBITE, PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THIS WEBSITE OR ON OUR LINKS PAGE The FULL Passenger and Crew list HAS NOW BEEN PRINTED (for the first Time ever) in our Book "The Lusitania Story",
However, by clicking HERE, you can access a Passenger and Crew list with a difference. This list has been compiled by the Liverpool historian Kevin Roach. The usual format for such a list would be Passengers first, by Class, followed by Crew. Using the list from our book as a basis, Kevin has compiled a purely alphabetical list of ALL those aboard the Lusitania for her final voyage. Where known, Kevin has included each person's address, if they had a connection with Liverpool. The address for Kevin's website is also on our LINKS page.
