This is the report of the government inquiry into the loss of the SS "Titanic", which was initiated immediately after the disaster. Lord Mersey, as Wreck Commissioner, headed the formal investigation, assisted by five assessors. Their findings, published in July 1912, were unanimous: "that the loss of the said ship was due to collision with an iceberg, brought about by the excessive speed at which the ship was being navigated".
