Mr William Clifford Weller, 29, was born at Littlehampton, Sussex on 20 November 1881.
He joined the Royal Navy and joined his first ship HMS Northampton on the 20th January 1899.
When he signed-on to the Titanic, on 6 April 1912, he gave his address as Holyrood House, (Southampton). His previous ship was the Olympic. As an able bodied seaman he received monthly wages of £5.

"William Weller received money and goods from the Titanic Relief Funds, visiting the American Embassy for his share of monies raised in that country. In Southampton he received 2 pints of milk per day, plus a weekly bag of coal for heating. He went on to have four sons - Stan, Fred, Ernest and John, some of whom followed him to sea. He died from pulmonary tuberculosis on May 1, 1954 at his home at 17 Beatrice Road, Southampton. He was 72".
