None. but there were indian born children off british parents,. remember india was under colonial rule then.

Marion Louise, Richard and Ruth Elizabeth were the children of Allen Oliver Becker and his wife Nellie E Baumgardner Becker.

Ruth went on to become one of the oldest survivors of the mid-Atlantic disaster. She died 78 years later after the Titanic went down, in 1990 at the age of 90.

But for the greater portion of a life -- that you can only call lucky -- she rarely mentioned to anyone that she had been aboard the Titanic.

Allen Becker, her father, hailed from Springfield, Ohio, and met his wife Nellie, the daughter of a photographer, at Wittenberg University, where they both studied, he at the School of Divinity.

Allen Becker, her father, hailed from Springfield, Ohio, and met his wife Nellie, the daughter of a photographer, at Wittenberg University, where they both studied, he at the School of Divinity.

Shortly after they were married in 1898, the United Lutheran Church posted Allan Becker to work in an orphanage in Guntur.

Three of their four children were born in India. Their eldest child Ruth spent the first 12 years of her life in India and apparently loved it.
