Wondering if anyone can help find out if a family story is myth or not?
A great great aunt called Gerti(may be gertrude) Edmunds had travelled from America to England with her aprox 1 year old daughter (HILDA) to visit her very sick mother. We believe that she was booked for her return voyage on TITANIC. She arrived in Southhampton day(s) before departure only to recieve a telegram with the news that her mother had taken a serious turn for the worse and she should return to Barrow in Furness.
We believe that she cancelled her ticket and reurned to America after the funeral on the HMS Devonshire or derbyshire?. I believe the family in America still have the ticket and passenger list for the boat she returned on but I would love to know if there was anyway of finding out if her name appears anywhere within the titanic passenger lists. I have heard this story many times over the years and family on both sides of the atlantic believe it to be true. Can anyone help?
