Frederick Allen, 17, was one of the lift attendants at the Grand Staircase of the Titanic. He died in the sinking.

Fred Allen was born in Bedford and in 1912 lived at 9 Short Street, Chapel, Southampton.

Allen was seen by Leo James Hyland jumping off one of the deck housings onto the Boat Deck. We had been ordered to Boat Stations at the time, I saw him go forward but did not see him again.

Fred Allen died in the sinking, his brother Trimmer Ernest Allen survived. Fred's body, if recovered, was never identified.
