117 William George Gardner, age purportedly 45. He was a 2nd Class Waiter on the Lusitania and was the son of Benjamin and Anna Gardner; husband of Hannah Gardner (nee Belington), of 17, Ferndale Rd., Waterloo, Lancs. He is said to have been born in Herefordshire. His body was identified and recovered (No. 20) and was buried at Queenstown on May 10th. William George Gardner married Hannah Bebington at St. Mary’s, Kirkdale, Lancaster (sic), on 15 January, 1882. His father was a Benjamin Gardner. His background, however, is a bit blurry.
