A poignant final letter home from a steward on the Titanic telling his wife to 'kiss the children for me' before he died in the disaster has come to light.<br />
<br />
The moving note from Charles Crumplin is being sold for £20,000 along with a second letter sent by a survivor to his widow, telling her what a hero her husband had been.<br />
<br />
After making sure the Countess of Rothes, one of Titanic's wealthiest passengers, was safely in a lifeboat along with her cousin and maid, Charles went back to help other women and children.<br />
<br />
Mr Crumplin, a first class cabin steward, went down with the ship and his body was never found.
