How many people died on the Titanic?
Of the 2,224 passengers and crew who were on board the Titanic when it sank, 1,502 people died.

How many passengers survived the sinking of the Titanic?
The Titanic was equipped to carry sixty-four lifeboats, but was only carrying twenty.

722 people survived the disaster, just 31.2% of those who were on board when the ship sank. Some survivors died later, either due to their injuries or to exposure. 

Millvina Dean from England was the youngest passenger on board the Titanic - she was only nine weeks old at the time.  She died at the age of ninety-seven in 2009.

  • Only 3% of the women passengers who were travelling first-class died in the disaster.
  • 54% of third-class passengers perished.
  • All the children who were travelling either first or second-class survived the incident, except for one.
  • Fifty-two of the seventy-nine children who were travelling third-class on the Titanic died when it sank.
  • Only three hundred and thirty-three bodies were recovered.
