Mr Carl Robert Carlsson, 24, was born in 1888 the son of farmer Emanuel and Anna Beata Carlsson from Lassa farm Sörby, Vessingebo, Halland, Sweden.

Carl Robert Carsson was the second youngest of five siblings. From 1908 he was a rental coachman in Falkenberg and thereafter he was soldier in Gothenburg.

Carl Robert was one of those who left Sweden without permission from the authorities and bought what was known as a "Danish waistcoat" including false papers, where after he and Nils Hilding continued to Esbjerg. Carl Robert sent a card with a picture of Titanic and wrote: "...if I had known that it would go so smooth then Anna may had come with me. Good-by!" Anna was his sister, youngest of the siblings. He was on his way from Gothenburg to relatives in Huntley, Illinois.

He travelled with Nils Hilding Jönsson, they went via Copenhagen and boarded the Titanic at Southampton as third class passengers.

Carlsson died in the sinking, his body, if recovered, was never identified.

When the father asked for aid from the Fund the "Halland County Sheriff" wrote to the foreign office that the Carlssons weren't in need of any aid. Therefore they wrote straight to London and got 875.52 Kr (£48) from the Mansion House Fund. 1366.50 Kr (£75) damage claims were paid to the parents.

Carl Robert Carlsson inköpte i Köpenhamn en väst vars fickor innehöll

de emigrationshandlingar som behövdes. Alla var förfalskade, förstås.

Denna väst kallades passande nog för bl a emigrantväst.

Man kunde också uppge att man var amerikansk medborgare.

Då behövdes inga prästbetyg, bara biljetter.

Biljetten hade nummer 350409 och kostade 7£ 15s.
