My boyfriends great grandad guarded Himmler's cell during WW2 and stole his glasses (but had to give them back)

My friend Stuart's great aunt was upper class on the Titanic and died on the Titanic and two of his ancestors had a ballad written about them because they refused to do as the king said so they were drowned.
