Warwood, Frank Joseph Dalton

Private ▪ 14th Battalion, Royal Warwickshire Regiment

Frank Joseph Dalton Warwood, born on 9th November 1891, was admitted to King Edward’s School in September 1903. He lived with his father, Joseph, a manager, his mother, Mary Ann, and his two older sisters at ‘Sunnyside’, Bristol Road, Northfield.

Frank was in the Lower Seventh Class of the Modern School, studying scientific subjects and French rather than the classics. He held his own in his class, although his weakest subject was mathematics. His best performance across his subjects was 5th out of 9 in his class for general work.

In 1914, Frank enlisted as a Private Soldier with the 14th Battalion, Royal Warwickshire Regiment, alongside many other Old Edwardians. He landed at Boulogne with the battalion on 21st November 1915. He was killed at Delville Wood during the Somme Offensive on the 30th July 1916. His body was never recovered but he is commemorated on the Thiepval Memorial. Frank left his estate of £184 to his father, Joseph.
