Mr Shadrach Gale, 34, was born at Rising Sun, a small hamlet near Harrowbarrow, Cornwall on 17 July 1878. The son of Mr Elijah Gale (Tin Miner) and Mrs Maria Gale. The 1881 census shows he was living with his parents and grandparents, Thomas and Rebecca Sandercock. He was brother to Harry, Alice and Rachael.
He had moved to Idaho Springs, Colorado in the early part of the century. He returned home to visit his family and encouraged his brother, Harry to return to Colorado with him where they were to work as miners.
They both travelled second class on the Titanic (ticket number 28664, £21). It is probable they travelled with Frederick Pengelly and William Ware, both of whom were from nearby Gunnislake.
Shadrach and Harry were lost in the sinking, their bodies were never recovered.
He had been a member of ''Woodmen of the World'' in Colorado and the membership erected a memorial to him in Idaho Springs. He also shares a fine memorial with his brother in Calstock Churchyard, Cornwall.
