Sidney Leslie Goodwin (9 September 1910 – 15 April 1912) was a 19-month-old English boy who died during the sinking of the RMS Titanic.

His unidentified body was recovered by the Mackay-Bennett after the sinking, and for many years, he was called The Unknown Child.[1] In 2008, mitochondrial DNA testing by the Armed Forces lab revealed his identity. Baby Goodwin is the only member of his family whose body has been recovered and identified.[2]
