Bertram Dean was the son of Bertram Frank Dean and his wife, Georgette Eva Light. He had a younger sister, Millvina Dean. The Deans boarded Titanic as third class passengers at Southampton, intending to take passage to America, where they hoped to settle in Wichita, Kansas and open a tobacco shop. On the night of the sinking, the one-year old Bertram, with his sister and his mother, were placed in Lifeboat 10, and survived to be picked up by RMS Carpathia. His father was lost in the sinking, with his body never being recovered.
Dean died on 14 April 1992 in Southampton, 80 years to the day since Titanic's sinking. His sister went on to become the last living Titanic survivor and died 17 years later.
