Letter: Brid bandmaster drowned on Titanic

In 1903 Wallace Hartley joined the Bridlington Municipal Orchestra.

Wallace was later to become bandmaster on board the Titanic, and lost his life when it went down in 1912.

When Wallace was in Bridlington he must have stayed in lodgings as at this time his family lived in Huddersfield.

However, I have never seen any information on the possible location of the lodgings.

I am sure that someone in Bridlington has some knowledge about this, and I would love to hear from them via rudstonchr@aol.com or through your letters page.
