Mr Daniel Danielsen Grønnestad, 32, was born on August 8, 1879 in Bokn, Stavanger, Norway, one of five children born to Daniel Grønnestad and Helene Holgersdatter Grønnestad, both farmers.

Daniel Grønnestad worked as a musician and verger in the local Bokn Church. Around 1900 Daniel emigrated to America with his brother Bertil. They often visited their family in Bokn and in 1912 were on their sixteenth visit. Both were to return to America aboard the Titanic, but Bertil had a premonition and pulled out. Daniel, on the other hand, wasn't put off and boarded the Titanic at Cherbourg as a third class passenger (ticket number 8471, £8, 6s, 15d). He shared a cabin with Bernt Johannessen, Ingvald and Konrad Hagland.

Mr Grønnestad died in the sinking. His body, if recovered, was never identified.
