Titanic love child's ashes scattered in the Atlantic





The ashes of the child conceived aboard the Titanic by a runaway couple, whose romance inspired the blockbuster film, have been scattered on to the Atlantic.

Yesterday the crew of a new Tamar Class lifeboat off Padstow, Cornwall, scattered the remains of Ellen Walker, who died, aged 92, in October last year.

The tragic story of the love affair between her parents, Henry Morley, 37, a married Worcester shopkeeper, and Katy Phillips, a 19-year-old shop assistant, is thought to have inspired the characters of Jack and Rose, played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet in the Hollywood film.
