The Anglo-American Telegraph Company's CS Minia was chartered on 21 April and went to sea the following day under the command of W.E.S. DeCarteret, with undertaker H.W. Snow and the Rev. H.W. Cunningham (rector, Anglican Parish of St. George, Brunswick Street, Halifax) aboard.
The vessel arrived at the disaster area on Friday 26 April, where it joined the MacKay-Bennett and remained until 3 May. Bad weather hampered the search throughout. After a week, only 17 bodies had been recovered; 15 were brought to Halifax to be claimed or interred.
The listing below, constructed electronically from the 'Disposition of Bodies ex Titanic' list, provides information on the 17 bodies recovered by the Minia.
