British Titanic Society membership provides an opportunity for those interested in the history of the Titanic, the White Star Line and other ships of the classic era to further their knowledge and enjoyment of this fascinating subject by sharing their hobby with fellow enthusiasts.
The British Titanic Society is run by volunteers who are keen to encourage research and active participation. They make no charge for their services, which enables subscriptions to be kept at a minimum level.
The British Titanic Society is completely independent of any commercial interests. We are very proud to have attracted substantial membership worldwide.
Our Honorary President Bob Pryor was born in 1956 in Ramsgate, Kent. Bob spent over twenty five years working for British Rail, and his interest in Titanic started when his father found some 1912 newspapers in the loft.
After displaying Titanic models at exhibitions, Bob founded the society in 1987.
A keen model maker, Bob has two sons, and lives with his wife Alison and their son Nigel in Ramsgate. Bob’s other son Nigel, used to exhibit at BTS conventions. Bob became Honorary President of the society in April 2010.
Our past Honorary President was the late Millvina Dean, who was the youngest, and final, survivor of the Titanic disaster. She sailed from Southampton aboard the ill-fated ship with her mother, father and brother.
Millvina was saved, along with her mother and brother, but unfortunately her father perished.
For many years she attended Titanic functions and society meetings, both in the United Kingdom and overseas, until in her latter years a lack of mobility prevented her from travelling.
