Mr William Small, 40, was born in Liverpool. When he signed-on to the Titanic, on 6 April 1912, he gave his address as 14 Russell Street, Southampton and his previous ship as the Olympic. His wages were £6 10s per month.
Fireman John Thompson testified at the U.S. inquiry that, after he and some other firemen had gone on deck after the collision, Small ordered them back below, apparently to go back to the boiler rooms.
Small died in the sinking. His body, if recovered, was never identified.
