Tombstone Tuesday – Carl Magnus Carlsson, 1909-1943

In this series, I am providing pictures of tombstones from Latvian cemeteries, all with death dates prior to 1945. I do not have any further information on the people mentioned.

Something a bit different for the next few weeks – these are gravestones from the Swedish section of the Meža kapi cemetery in Rīga, so the inscriptions are in Swedish, not Latvian.

Top inscription: “Här vilar maskinisten” (“Here lies machinist”)

Name: Carl Magnus Carlsson, born August 19, 1909, died September 2, 1943

Location: Swedish section, Meža kapi, Rīga
