Frank Valder 1886-1979
Frank Valder was my Great Great Uncle, younger brother of my Great Grandmother, Elizabeth Valder.
Frank was born to John and Louisa on 9th May 1886 in Stepney, East London. The family were living at 71 Grosvenor Street, Stepney in 1891 and had moved to 547 Commercial Road, Stepney by 1901. The 14 year old Frank is described as a Warehouse Boy on the census. By 1911 Frank was still living with his parents who had moved out of London to 45 Wanstead Park Road, Ilford, Essex. Frank was now a hosiery salesman.
During the First World War Frank and his brothers, Albert and Alfred were in the Royal Army Medical Corps.
Frank's Regimental Number was 1897. He was in the 4th London RAMC and received the Military Medal.
I don't know much else about Frank at present, except that he died in Essex on 30th January 1979 at the age of 92.
