Does anyone have informatiion of Fred who served with the York and Lancs 12th Bat and is named on the roll of honour at Kelham Island - formerly Cammell Laird, Cyclops Works? I can find Frank but no Fred (or Frederick) in the army or memorial records. Any connection would be appreciated. Thank you.
