Maria Robinson-- Part 1: Fiancee of Wallace Hartley, the Titanic's Bandleader

Back in 2014, I wrote about Wallace Hartley, bandleader on the Titanic.  He left a fiancee named Maria Robinson.  They became engaged in 1910 and had plans for marriage in the summer of 1912.

In February 2012, researcher Jill Pengelly found a photograph of Maria Robinson at Wallace Hartley's funeral.

She died in 1939 and is buried in an unmarked grave in a cemetery near Leeds.

The Titanic organization is raising funds to mark her grave.
