I have this man who died in America, he was brought back to Wales to be buried on the "City of Rome"
 I`ve been trying to find any reports , but not finding US newspapers , or any other details that might help.
I`ve also been searching for him on passenger lists without any success.  His wife was Florence.

Can anyone help please.
