NOTE:  Boat 11 was one of the lifeboats whose loading was supervised by Fifth Officer Lowe, who clearly felt a greater sense of urgency than did some of his seniors, and so he put as many people aboard it as he felt safe to do so, even though the number exceeded the theoretical maximum capacity of the boat.  In this he was aided by the fact that several of those people were infants or small children.
