When he signed-on to the Titanic, on 4 April 1912, he gave his address as 22 Stern Street, Shepherd's Bush, (London). His last ship had been the Olympic. As the racquet court attendant he received weekly wages of £1.
Wright met Colonel Archibald Gracie shortly after the collision, Gracie jokingly cancelled his raquets lesson for the next morning, Wright seemed concerned, probably because by that time he knew the raquet court to be filling with water.
Wright died in the sinking. His body, if recovered, was never identified.
