Mr Walter Hurst, 23, lived on Chapel Rd, Southampton. He was married on 18th May 1907 to Rosina née Mintram. His father-in-law William Mintram was also a fireman on board.

William Mintram and Walter Hurst met each other shortly before the Titanic went down. William had found a lifejacket, but Hurst had not, so William gave his lifejacket to his son-in-law. This may have contributed to the fact that Walter was able to stay on collapsible B, and to survive, while William did not.
