See if you can get hold of a copy of Neil DeMarco's book New Worlds for Old, Britain 1750-1900: Mainstream Edition (Hodder History) ISBN978-0340747490.
Not worth buying for this topic only, but see if your school or local library has a copy - the last chapter is about the Titanic. It sees the Titanic as an example of the class system in operation.

Have you seen this eyewitness account?
It might be interesting to compare her real-life experiences (actually there is loads more stuff on her if you google) to the film, and judge how realistic the film was in its portrayal of life on the Titanic.

There are huge amounts of stuff on the internet - have you see this and this?

Thank you. Mr. Clare. There is also a section from the 'History on the Net' website here which has a lot of details, although maybe not as much as the Encyclopadia Titanica.

Incidentally, the Titanic had two sister ships, Olympic, which survived to be scrapped in 1935 and Britannic, which was sunk during the First World War while being used as an hospital ship.
