The first class staterooms were luxuriously furnished with curtained beds and tables and chairs. The most expensive even had their own private balcony. Passengers could reserve tables and book areas for private parties. The First Class smoking room was open for most of the day. Passengers could purchase the most luxurious cigarettes and tobacco here. Second class staterooms were occupied by up to four people.
By the standards of the day they were luxurious with mahogany furniture and linoleum floors. In order to ensure that food served at tables was as fresh as possible, the Titanic was fitted with a refrigerated storage area. There were different areas for meat, cheese, flowers and wines and champagne.
This large, pleasantly furnished room was where second class passengers took their meals. Food served to second class passengers was cooked in the first class kitchen. Food for both first and second class passengers was prepared in the same galley. There was a large ice-cream maker as well as refrigerated rooms for storing meat and perishable goods.
The First Class Dining room was beautifully decorated with a huge glass dome roof and could seat over people. This was where the third class passengers took their meals. It was said to be like second class dining rooms on other ships. The Titanic had 24 boilers each containing 6 furnaces and 5 boilers containing 3 furnaces. Coal was burned in the boilers to power the ship and the steam and smoke was released through the four funnels.

Designed for use by first and second class passengers only, they each had their own lift attendant. None of the four lift attendants survived.

Smith was married with a young daughter. Very little is known about his actions on the Titanic after the collision — he was last seen on the bridge of the sinking ship. Captain Smith went down with his ship and his body was never recovered. Henry Wilde was serving as Chief Officer on the Olympic but was transferred to the Titanic for her maiden voyage. Wilde was off duty when the ship hit the iceberg. He took control of the even numbered lifeboats and was last seen trying to free the collapsible lifeboats.
William Murdoch, 39 years old, had served on a number of White Star ships. He joined the Titanic as first officer and was on the bridge at the time of the collision and gave the order to turn the ship. He helped to load women and children into the lifeboats. He did not survive the disaster and his body was not recovered. Charles Lightoller had begun his sailing career at the age of 13 and had been involved in a shipwreck before.
Lightoller was keen to load the lifeboats as quickly as possible and was still trying to free the collapsible lifeboats when Titanic sank.
He was sucked under the sea but blown to the surface by air escaping from a vent. He managed to climb onto the overturned collapsible lifeboat B. He survived the disaster and as the most senior surviving officer testified at both inquiries. Herbert Pitman was in his bunk when Titanic hit the iceberg. After helping to uncover lifeboats he was put in charge of lifeboat number 5 by William Murdoch.
After Titanic had sunk, Pitman wanted to return for more passengers but others in the boat persuaded him that they would swamp the boat and they would all die. Pitman was called to give evidence during the inquiry into the disaster. Joseph Boxall, aged 28, had been at sea for 13 years. After the collision Boxall helped to fire the distress rockets and to signal the nearby ship with a morse code lamp. Boxall was put in charge of lifeboat number 2 and like Pitman was persuaded not to return for more survivors after the ship had sunk.
Boxall also gave evidence at the inquiry. Lowe was fast asleep when the Titanic hit the iceberg. When he eventually woke up, disturbed by noise, the ship was already at an angle. Lowe helped to load women and children into the lifeboats and took charge of lifeboat After the cries and screams from the water had died down, Lowe put passengers from his lifeboat into others nearby before returning to pick up survivors.
Lowe only found 4 people alive and one died before being rescued by the Carpathia.
