Hi guys, I know I've been gone a while, but I really need to know. How many each of men women and children died from each class when the titanic sank?
Sort of...
1st class men:
2nd class men;
3rd class men;
1st class women;
etc....
Be great if you could give me a hand, because as great as Google is, Google can only find answers already on the web and said answers are being incredibly unhelpful.

Search string: "titanic deaths", 3rd result. :)

Note the notes at the bottom though:
1. There is no exact or definitive number for the people aboard the Titanic, nor for those who survived. There are official documents, such as a Contract Ticket List, a Certificates of Clearance, lists of alien passengers prepared for the United States Immigration Service. There were two official lists of deceased passengers created in 1912. There are discrepancies, inaccuracies, inconsistences, ommissions, and other mistakes with both names and numbers. Researchers, such as Michael A. Findlay, Philip Hind, and Lester J. Mitcham, have been able to correct many errors and solve many mysteries, but there will always be a few problems that will never be solved. Because of their research, however, even if an exact number will never known, wild guesses and estimates from the past can be rejected, and the totals, if not precise, can be viewed as pretty close.

3. Figures for the crew are even less reliable. No accurate crew list was compiled at the time. Many extra crew members were added just before she was launched after the crew list had been compiled.

(Looking at the site a bit more, this guy has done a ton of work!)
