¶ Death
  • The sources all agree that he died 8 March 1927. However, against that we have:
  1. Testimony of an anonymous contributor: Edward James Smith Did NOT DIE in 1927. I was born in 1939 and I remember him very well for lots of years following. (
  2. BDM Death Index ref # 70481/1972 sounds like him
so there was probably a transposition error, copied by everyone.
