It is unsettling to find yourself at the stern and down there with the propellers.
You just don't expect to see the vessel from this angle.
Just as they didn't expect to see the iceberg nor be damaged and sunk by it.
Nor expect to be floating in the water and seeing the vessel from this angle either.
May God rest their Souls.
One hundred and fifty of those that lost their lives are buried here in Halifax cemeteries. Grave markers paid for by the White Star Line. Fifty-nine bodies were shipped by train to their relatives. (116 buried at sea because they ran out of embalming fluid on the two cable ships out searching for bodies.)
In all, four ships recovered 328 bodies and returned with 209 which were unloaded at the Coaling Wharf of the Naval Dockyard in Halifax. The class barriers, so typical of life on board the Titanic, were respected even in death. The bodies of first-class passengers were unloaded in the coffins, second-and third-class passengers in canvas bags, and the crew on open stretchers.
