They convinced her to follow them to England instead but none of them knew they should go on the Titanic. When they arrived at Southampton they found out that they had been re-booked because of the coal strike.
Adelia later told that she had been helped up to deck by Holm and Ådahl when the ship was sinking. She had went down to her cabin a second time to take some small things, but then found the doors locked. Ådahl helped her to open the door and he and Holm had driven her down in lifeboat 13.
