Lucy Violet SNAPE (formerly LENNARD) Mrs Lucy Violet Snape, 22, of Well Lane, Sandhills, Witley, Surrey died in the sinking.

Lucy Lennard was born in Crooksbury, Nr Farnham, Surrey, England in 1890, the daughter of Edward James and Elizabeth Jane Adelaide Lennard (née Caesar)

On 7th September 1909, aged 21, she married Lawrance Edward Snape (41) at the Register Office in Tonbridge, Kent, England.

She gave birth to a daughter, Margaret Isabel Snape, at The Flying Dutchman Inn, Hildenborough, Kent, England on 18 June 1910.

Sometime between her marriage and signing-on to the Titanic on 6th April 1912 she was widowed. As a stewardess she was required to report for duty no later than 6am on 10th April 1912. Her wage was £3 per month.

Lucy Violet SNAPE was aged 22 years when the Titanic sank. She died in the sinking and her body was never recovered. Her last known address was Well Lane, Sandhills, Witley, Surrey, England

The Daily Sketch (30 April 1912) reported the experiences of two surviving stewardesses - Mrs Gold and Mrs Martin - as follows:

"The stewardess-matron, Mrs Wallis, refused to leave her room. Her remark was "I am not going on deck; I am going back where I am safe." Another one who refused to move was a second-cabin stewardess, Mrs Snape, a widow, 21 years of age with a little girl. As she fastened the lifebelts on her passengers she wished them good-bye. Later she told some of the stewardesses that she did not expect to see them again."

Notes Interestingly Lucy Violet SNAPE and Catherine Jane WALLIS signed-on at the same time!

11 October 1912 - Letters Of Administration with the Will were granted by His Majesty's High Court of Justice at the Principal Probate Registry to Edward James LENNARD. Gross value of the Estate = £234-14s-2d.

22 December 1934 - Lucy Violet SNAPE's only daughter, Margaret Isabel SNAPE, married at the age of 24 to John William McDougall, aged 26, at The Parish Church of St Margaret's, Streatham Hill, London, England. Her husband died a few years later. They had no children and she herself died 25 January 1996. Credits Richard Adkins, UK
