About William Loch 'Willie' Coutts

Master William Loch "Willie" Coutts

Master William ‘Willie’ Loch Coutts, 9, was born in London on 16 October 1902, the son of William and Winnie Trainer Coutts. He boarded the Titanic at Southampton as a third class passenger with his mother and younger brother Neville. The family were on their way to Brookyln, New York to join Willie’s father, William Coutts.

On the night of the disaster Willie, his mother and brother were rescued in lifeboat 2, but not without difficulty. It seems that the straw hat he was wearing made him look too old! But he was finally granted access to the lifeboat.

In later years William Coutts became a professional musician, married and had two daughters, one of whom still resides in North Carolina.

William Loch Coutts died in Steubenville, Ohio on 25 December 1957, aged 55.
