Thomas Andrews (1873 - 1912):
Ship designer


Thomas Andrews was born in Comber, County Down, and began work in Harland & Wolff's shipyard in Belfast at the age of sixteen. He studied design at night and eventually became managing director in 1907. He was chief designer of the Titanic, and when it sank on its maiden voyage he drowned with the ship. Comber remembers him in the naming of its Memorial Hall.
