The First & Second Class Galley was located on D Deck. This is where meals were prepared for both the First Class Dining Saloon and the Second Class Dining Room.

It had the latest in restaurant equipment, from ovens to stockpots the floors were covered with a grooved tile to provide sure footing for the hardworking kitchen staff.

Some of the staff had a specific job, a vegetable cook would have only prepared vegetable meals other cooks included a roast cook, an entreé cook, and a larder cook. There was even a Hebrew cook to prepare kosher meals for the Jewish passengers.

A typical kitchen porter on the ship would have been paid a monthly wage of around £3 that’s about £290 in today money, whilst a cook would have earned about £4 a month (£400 today).
