The last decade or two of the 19th century and well into the 1950's and 1960's was the golden age of obituaries for "anyone" - but not in the big, national papers or even regional papers. Obituaries and reports from funerals were instead big items in small local papers.
These small local papers have been microfilmed, but not digitized nor indexed. The microfilms are available at s few large university research libraries but also quite often at the local library in question (they often have a "genealogy corner" and/or a "local interest corner").

You can email the library in Ängelholm at

They should have the local papers from way back when, and they may be willing to locate information and email it to you. I doubt they will translate for you, but you can just post it here and I'm sure everyone will help you out with that.
