The Musicians who played to the end, on board the Titanic:  The band played the song, Nearer My God to Thee at 2:13 a.m. It was a prayer to everyone. It is thought by some that the band leader, Wallace Hartley, started playing by himself at first and then the rest of the band joined in.   The band knew 352 different songs by heart. They had to be ready for any requests the passengers might make on the trip.

"A wealthy, single socialite, Edith Corse Evans was 36 years old when she boarded the Titanic. On board she befriended a 59 year old wife and mother named Caroline Brown. The two women were among the throng trying to reach a lifeboat as the Titanic sank. When only one space remained, Edith pushed Caroline forward saying “You go first, you have children waiting at home.” Edith was one of four first class women to perish in the sinking of the Titanic. Her body has never been recovered."

Margaret “Molly” Brown: philanthropist, women’s/human rights activist and survivor of the sinking of the RMS Titanic.    This badass had to be forced into a lifeboat by three men after she kept giving up her seat for others. Once in the lifeboat she reportedly picked up an oar and gave one of the surviving engineers her coat.

John Jacob Astor.... The Richest Man In The World, at the time of the Titanic sinking. His body was found with 750 British pounds in his pocket and covered in soot which meant that he had been crushed by the forward funnel.
