Mr Einar Windeløv

Einar Windelov

Mr Einer Windeløv was born 29 December 1890 in Nyköbing, Odsherred, Själland (Zealand), Denmark, the son of Hans (b. 21 October 1857), a hotel manager, and Anna Hansine (nee Hansen, b. 3 September 1867) Windelöv. His parents had married 2 April 1890 at Holbaek, Nyköbing, Själland, Denmark.

He had a sister, Magda Johanne (b. 16 August 1892) and he seems to have had a step-brother, named Aage.

He had apparently been in Argentina and South Africa, but in September 1911 he was back in Denmark, working as an apprentice in a shop. According to unverified family stories, he had had an affair with a young girl and it is alluded at that they had a son together, born in September 1911.

He boarded the Titanic at Southampton. He was travelling with Hans Givard and Martin Ponesell, although the other two were travelling in second class.

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