Last Titanic survivor’s ashes scattered

The ashes of Millvina Dean, the last Titanic survivor to pass away, have been scattered at the dock from which the doomed ship set sail.

Millvina Dean was nine weeks old when the liner sank after hitting an iceberg in the Atlantic on its maiden voyage from Southampton on 15 April 1912.

Miss Dean died in a care home in Hampshire on 31 May at the age of 97.

Miss Dean’s ashes were scattered from a small launch on the water of berth 43/44 at Southampton Docks, the terminal from which the ship set sail.
