EAST HADDON HISTORY SOCIETY Northamptonshire, England



Born in East Haddon in 1885, Frank was the son of Mary and William Cadman of 30 The Terrace. He was unmarried, and was employed as a domestic groom.

He joined the 10th battalion, the Suffolk Regiment (unclear why the Suffolk Regiment since he was living in East Haddon), when he signed up at the start of the war.

He died on 6 May, 1916 age 30, and his body was returned to England, for burial in the cemetery at East Haddon: by this time his father had died, and his mother attended the burial. (The “twgpp” website records his having died of heart failure).

Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) lists him as having a “special memorial” which is his grave in East Haddon cemetery.
