The forgotten teenager who plunged to his death while building the Titanic is to get a gravestone at last.
Samuel Scott (15) was the first person connected with the tragic vessel to die after he fell on the construction site. His body has lain in an unmarked grave in Belfast City Cemetery but a new headstone will be unveiled on Saturday.
It follows the publication of a book, Spirit Of The Titanic, which used the teenager as the main character in a children's story about the voyage.
Author Nicola Pierce said: "It really seems to have hit home, the kids really do seem to like it."
The book follows Samuel's ghost as it haunts the decks of the ship after his death, following central real-life figures such as the ship's captain, Edward Smith.
Samuel fell while working in a riveting team at Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. He suffered a skull fracture on April 20, 1910. His is believed to be the first death connected to the Titanic.
The gravestone unveiling ceremony will take place this Saturday at midday at the City Cemetery.
