About Sidney Leslie Goodwin
He boarded the Titanic with his parents, Frederick,and Augusta and siblings Lillian, 16; Charles, 14; William, 11; Jessie, 10; and Harold, 9.
The entire family was lost in the sinking.
One of the first bodies recovered by the cable ship Mackay-Bennett was of that of a small fair haired boy. The sailors involved in the expedition were so moved that when no relative came forward to claim the child, they personally escorted the child's coffin to Fairview Lawn Cemetery in Halifax and paid for a large monument in memory of the "unknown child". (His was the only burial service that day - 4 May 1912). In 2002 the body previously identified only as "the unknown child" was positively idenified as Eino Viljami Panula by means of DNA technology, in 2007 the researchers revised their opinion and stated that the body was in fact that of Sidney Goodwin.
