Mr Kurt Arnold Gottfrid Bryhl

Mr Kurt Arnold Gottfrid Bryhl, 25, was born on 2 March, 1887 in Ulricehamn, Älvsborgs County, Sweden, to Edvard Gottfrid and Ida Jenny (nee Gustafsson) Lustig.

Kurt worked as upholsterer (or decorator / wall-paperman) in Skara; he and his half-sister Dagmar Bryhl had taken their name from their grandmother. They boarded the Titanic at Southampton with Dagmar's fiancé Ingvar Enander as second class passengers. Kurt acted as interpreter for the group.

Upon arrival in America Ingvar, Kurt and Dagmar were to join the Bryhl's uncle Oskar Lustig at 511 Pearl St. Rockford, Illinois.

Mr Bryhl unlike the others, was emigrating to America. On the night of the sinking, Dagmar recalled, Kurt had been wearing a gray-speckled costume. He died in the disaster.
