Wallace Henry Hartley (1878 - 1912) Titanic Violinist Love ❤️ Story Buried in the Depths of the Atlantic

+7 votes

The love heart story of him and his fiancé Maria Robinson is very interesting. When they recovered his body was the violin strapped to his heart as the legend says? Also is there a wiki profile of Maria that can be attached or linked to his as she never married due to a broken heart?

See TITANIC CENTENARY: Colne's heroic bandmaster and the fiancee he left behind

Maria Robinson FindAGrave apparently passed away from stomach cancer. Very sad

This is an amazingly well done profile!

Profile is part of the Project: Titanic

Hi Andrew,

Thank you for the feedback on Wallace’s profile, lots of people have helped add to him over time....

We are yet to get him connected though! (A personal challenge of mine that I must return to as I promised a colleague of mine I would try, he’s a Hartley born and bred in Colne).

It would be lovely to create a profile for Maria, their profiles can’t connect in the usual Wikitree sense, so if we added and connected Maria, Wallace still wouldn’t be connected to the global tree. But we can reference their relationship and link their profiles to each other in the Biography :-)

Is this something you are interested in collaborating in? Especially as you’ve just provided us a new source to add to him :-)
