According to a conspiracy theorist studying the secret files, the Freemasons had a great influence on the investigation of how the Titanic sank.
The famous British passenger ship sank on April 15, 1912, sending more than 1,500 passengers and crew to their deaths. The Titanic was heading from Southampton to New York when it allegedly struck an iceberg and began to plunge into the Atlantic Ocean.
Over 100 years later, many still dispute the official story, with conspiracy theories stating that the ship’s owner, White Star, may have been to blame for the tragedy.
Supreme Court Justice Lord Mersey led an investigation by the British Wreck Commissioner on behalf of the Board of Trade between May 2 and July 3, 1912, in order to find out who the culprit was.
After questioning more than 100 witnesses from White Star Line employees, government officials, and survivors, the final report was published on July 30, 1912.
His recommendations, along with those of the previous US Senate investigation, led to changes in security practices after the disaster.
However, a secret document containing the names of two million members of Freemasonry was first made available in 2015, and was revealed in the Netflix documentary “The 10 Most Important Mysteries and Secrets .”
The Masons are a fraternal organization of elite members, with more than 300 years old, using handshakes, secret codes, and symbols to build mutual trust among members.
The documents confirmed that not only Lord Mersey, but even some of those who escaped censorship were part of the society.
Furthermore, the Chairman of the Board of Trade, who was to blame for the lax regulations that allowed the outrageous number of lifeboats to fit on the ship, was also a member of the Freemasons.
Sydney Buxton started in Limehouse, East London, in 1888, when he was the local MP at the time, documents show.
While Lord Mersey – John Charles Bigham – was, according to records, it was started in 1881 at the Northern Bar Lodge in London.
The names of at least two of the five expert advisers on the research, Professor John Harvard Biles, a specialist in naval architecture, and Edward Chaston, the senior engineering advisor, can also be found in the Masonic archive.
Meanwhile, Lord Pirrie, who was not the only chairman of the Harland and Wolff shipyards in Belfast to build the Titanic, but also one of the directors of White Star’s parent company, also appears to have been a Freemason.
