In the aftermath of her sinking the Titanic's owners contracted four vessels to search for bodies in the seas where she sank. In eight weeks the vessels Mackay-Bennett, Minia, Montmagny and Algerine recovered 328 bodies. 209 were returned to shore, with 150 buried in Halifax (Canada) and the rest repatriated to relatives around the world.

At the same time commemorative memorials - buildings, plaques, portraits, statues and tablets - were commissioned. Funded by public subscription and overseen by committees, many were unveiled in public ceremonies attended by large numbers of people from the local community. Memorials have continued to be unveiled to this day, with many commemorating the centenary of the sinking of the Titanic in 2012.
