Daily Sketch, 30th April 1912
Maynard, who was married without children, initially signed on to the Titanic for the delivery trip from Belfast to Southampton. When he signed-on to the Titanic for the second time, on 4 April 1912, he gave his address as 31 Earls Rd., (Southampton) but he lived at 21 Highfield Road, Highfield, Southampton. He had transferred from the Olympic. He received monthly wages of £7 10s.
Maynard was rescued on Collapsible B. The Press later dubbed him "Maynard, the steward who took the baby from Captain Smith's arms" following unsubstantiated reports that Smith had delivered a child to the boat before swimming off to his death.
