Carlo Fei

Mr Carlo Giuseppe Fei was born in Ivrea, Turin, Italy around 1893 and was the son of Giuseppe Fei (b. 1863).

Carlo and his father had resettled in London, England sometime prior to 1911 and were shown on the 1911 census as boarders at 9 Richmond Buildings in Westminster, both being described as restaurant kitchen porters.

When Fei came under the employ of Italian restaurateur Luigi Gatti is not known but he was selected to serve aboard Titanic's maiden voyage as a kitchen porter on his first working voyage. He signed on 6 April 1912 and his address was given as 26 Anne's Court, Dean Street, Soho.

During the sinking there were reports that the largely continental staff of the restaurant, mainly French, Italian, Swiss, German and Belgian, were herded to their quarters by stewards and kept there. Indeed, only three from the staff survived, two of whom were the female cashiers.

Carlo Fei, who was unmarried, died in the sinking and his body, if recovered, was never identified.
