I can't see a Morait on the Titanic passenger lists, but you can check here in case I've missed it:
http://www.encyclopedia-titanica.org/titanic_passenger_list/

(Of course, she may have had a married name)

P.S.

We all went through our lives having Morait misspelt, and mispronounced, it ranged from Morit to Moriarty, the Daughters were so relieved to marry!!!!!!!!!

Thank you so, so much, My grandfather Nicholas Morait was Greek Born in Pireaus and my Grandmothers name was Catherine Sephton, and it looks a though she was pregnant with my dad Peter John Morait when they married!!!!!! his birthday was 19th August 1919. There are loads of Lesleys on here. What generation am I ? I wonder.
I even found a Michael Morait in a Census, he was born in the 1700s. And a Mary-Ann Morait, Granddad said she was lost on the Titanic, but don't know if that's true, I was only 8 when he used to tell me and my sisters that story in his broad Greek accent !!!!!!!!!

Again thank you all Lesley Morait
