Mrs Sidney Samuel Jacobsohn (Amy Frances Cohen) was born in London the daughter of Moreno Cohen and Alice Frances (nee Jones). Her father died when she was a baby and in the 1901 census she is listed at the District Infant Orphan Asylum in Wanstead, Essex.
She boarded the Titanic at Southampton as a second class passenger together with her husband Sidney Samuel Jacobsohn, mother and sister Juli. To reach their initial destination Montreal, Canada, they bought ticket number 243847 for £27.
Amy Frances Jacobsohn had suferred a miscarriage early in 1912 and it was decided that she and Sidney together with his mother in law and sister in law would holiday in California where Alices son farmed. It is unclear why they were travelling to Montreal first.
Mrs Jacobsohn survived the sinking. She was rescued by the Carpathia in lifeboat 12.
On the Carpathia she sent a telegram to her husband's parents:
18 April, 6.5 am
Jacobsohn 34 Anson Road Cricklewood London
Dont be alarmed Sydney may be on another boat
Together with the Christys, she returned to England on board of the Megantic on 11 May 1912.
