The National Archives has published a new online resource to mark the centenary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic on 14 April 1912.

The dedicated Titanic page – which includes biographical accounts of some of the individuals on board, short videos and podcasts, and an image showcase – can be viewed here. You can also search passenger and crew lists from across Titanic, Olympic (Titanic’s sister ship) and Carpathia, the ship who rescued the survivors from the lifeboats.

The National Archives holds many records about RMS Titanic, including passenger lists, crew lists and the Board of Trade Inquiry into the sinking. We currently have original, unique material from the records related to Titanic on display in our museum. A display, using facsimiles, in our reading rooms also looks at the ship and the people associated with her.
