Mr John William Gill, 24, was born in 1887/8, the son of Richard Gill. In 1912 he lived at 3 Griffin Road, Clevedon and worked as a chauffeur to the Rev. C R Braithwaite, vicar of Hewish St Ann, near Puxton.
He married Sarah Elizabeth Wilton Hodder at St. John the Evangelist, Clevedon, Somerset on 14 February 1912. Barely two months following their marriage Gill was embarking the Titanic at Southampton as a second class passenger (ticket number 233866, £13). His destination in America is not known but the intention was that he was to set up home for them both.
Gill died in the sinking. His body was subsequently recovered from the sea by the cable-laying vessel MacKay Bennett (#155) on 23 April. He was buried at sea the following day.
