A poignant document listing the dead recovered from the Atlantic Ocean after the Titanic sank has emerged for sale for £18,000.<br />
<br />
The steamer Mackay-Bennett found 306 bodies during a gruelling seven day search in the aftermath of the 1912 tragedy.<br />
<br />
Of these, 116 were buried at sea and the remaining 190 brought back to Halifax in Canada, where they were laid out in a makeshift morgue as there were not the facilities to cope with the scale of the disaster.
