Mr Frederick Edward Giles. (k/a Fred) Fred Giles was born in Porthleven, Cornwall sometime after 1891. He was the son of William H Giles (farm/general worker) and Mary Cornish Giles (née Andrewartha).
Fred worked as a carpenter in Porthleven. In 1910 Fred's elder brother, John Frances Giles emigrated to America, where he set up home at 435 Pine Street, Camden, New Jersey where he worked as a professional horse trainer. A couple of years later Fred and his brother Edgar decided to join him there. For their journey both Fred and Edgar travelled on Titanic, boarding at Southampton. They had been due to travel on Oceanic but the coal strike had forced the change to Titanic. They travelled second class. Fred's ticket (No. 28134) had cost him £11 10s.
Fred died in the sinking, his body, if recovered, was never identified.
