    The last survivor of the Titanic

    Service for the last survivor of the Titanic
    October 26, 2009

    The ashes of Millvina Dean, the last survivor of the Titanic disaster, have been scattered at the spot from where the vessel departed on its maiden voyage almost a century ago.

    Her remains were transported to an area close to berth 44 at the Eastern Docks, in Southampton.

    At 2 months old, Miss Dean was the youngest passenger on board the liner, which sank with the loss of more than 1,500 lives. Her parents were leaving England to emigrate to Wichita, Kansas. The Deans were not supposed to be on board Titanic, but because of a coal strike they were transferred to the ship and boarded as third-class passengers.

    Miss Deanís father felt the collision with the iceberg on the night of April 14, 1912, and Miss Dean, her mother, and brother were placed in Lifeboat 10. They were among the first third-class passengers to escape the ship. Her father did not survive.

    She was the last survivor of the sinking.

    The New York Times was the first newspaper to print the story back in 1912.

    This was the paper's front page after the sinking, with the full article following afterwards:
