Who was Wallace Hartley and where did he come from? Not much has been written about this enigmatic band leader or of his part in the tragedy, beyond a few mentions in the many books on the disaster. But he was one of the most important characters in the story of Titanic. Yvonne Carroll has spent years researching the life story of Wallace Hartley land has conducted interviews with remaining members of his family.
