1) Total number of people on board – 2,208
    Total number of survivors - 712
    Total number of perished - 1,496
    These were proven by a number of noted Titanic researchers, such as Phil Gowan, Lester Mitcham, Hermann Soldner, and others, who all came to the same values. See also the books “On a Sea of Glass” and “Report Into the Loss of the SS Titanic: A Centennial Reappraisal”. Any other numbers are old and out-of-date.  "Over 1500 perished" is wrong.

4) The coal bunker fire was not a factor in the sinking. See the article “Fire and Ice” in the book "Titanic: Solving the Mysteries" at

5) The correct time difference between Titanic time and New York time was 2 hours and 2 minutes. See the article “Time and Again: Titanic's Final Hours” in the book "Titanic: Solving the Mysteries" at

9) Titanic's centre prop had 3 blades, not 4. Mark Chirnside has the proof at

10)  A black woman named Malinda Borden did not perish on the Titanic. The proof is at both Kyle Hudak's page, and
