Unsinkable Sam (aka Oskar/Oscar) - German ship’s cat who saw service in both the Kriegsmarine and Royal Navy during the Second World War, serving on board three vessels (the Bismarck, the HMS Cossack and the HMS Ark Royal) and surviving the sinking of all three.
Samuel Solomon Williams-fireman-died in the sinking. His body, if recovered, was never identified. His parents received financial aid from the Titanic relief fund. Sam Williams was not married but he had a young son, also called Sam. The child's mother went to court and produced affidavits from other Titanic surviving crew members saying that 'Sam Williams had been on board'; the Mansion House Fund accepted the Courts decision and paid out the appropriate pensions to the girl and the child.
