    Name: MALLINSON, FRANK
    Rank: Corporal
    Service No.: 4468606

    Age: 41

    Additional information: Son of Joseph and Isabella Mallinson;
    husband of Edith Annie Mallinson of Glenridding, Westmorland.
    __________________________________________________

    Corporal Mallinson was a native of Co. Durham (Hetton-le-Hole). Before the war he worked as a waiter, living at both Glenridding, Westmorland and Longtown, Cumberland (both now in Cumbria). He died at the Cumberland Infirmary, Carlisle, Cumberland (cause of death - perforated gastric ulcer) and was buried in Arthuret churchyard near Longtown.

    The epitaph on his headstone is as follows:
    "Sacred to the memory of Frank,
    The dear husband of Edith and father of Joe and Tom".

    The headstone immediately to the right of Corporal Mallinson's (Attachment No. 1) is that of his widow, Edith Annie Bowes (presumably she remarried after the war).
