Although he is best known for his last appearence in Scotland Road, he also appeared in an earlier scene.
Just before Captain Smith handed the distress position to Jack Phillips, the Scotland Road steward and another unnamed steward woke up steerage passengers, with the Scotland Road steward constantly shouting "put your lifebelts on!"
Later, when Jack and Rose were fleeing from the rushing water, Jack broke through a door and they found themselves on Scotland Road. The steward, who was guiding steerage passengers to the lifeboats, attempted to charge them for damaging White Star Line property, but he received a double "Shut up!" from Jack and Rose.
|Scotland Road Steward: Hey! What do you think you're doing? You'll have to pay for that, you know! That's White Star Line property!
Jack and Rose: SHUT UP!
The steward bailed away and was never seen again. He most likely died in the sinking, as he wasn't seen in any lifeboat nor between steerage passengers on Carpathia.
First Class passenger Richard Norris Williams observed a steward attempting to open the door of a cabin from which a panicking passenger was trapped behind. Williams put his shoulder to the door and broke in. The steward threatened to report him for damaging White Star Line property. This inspired a scene in A Night to Remember where a steward tried to hold back a group of passengers who were breaking a gate to enter First Class. This scene in turn inspired the Scotland Road Steward scene.
