PortrayalsEdit

Despite being known for helping Hart with assisting the steerage passengers to the lifeboats, unlike Hart, Steward Cox is not portrayed in any popular culture.

Even though, in 2012 Miniseries Titanic, there is a steward who helps Hart, in bringing the women and children to the gate before Steward Turnbull cuts off the line. [1]
