Meine Geschichte

Frank Waring (or Wareing), a former pawnbroker assistant, was born in 1888 in Widnes, Lancashire, England. He was the son of William and Mary Waring, living in 144 Mersey Road, Widnes. He was married to Emily Wareing, and was the father of Frank Wareing. He enlisted at Crewe, Cheshire East, England. Frank served as a Private in the 146th Machine Gun Company, part of 146th (West Riding) Brigade, from the 49th (West Riding) Division.

On November 11, the 146th Brigade relieved the 6th Australian Brigade in the front line on Broodseinde Ridge. During the following days, there was enemy shelling in the area.

Frank Wareing, aged 29, was killed in action on November 13, 1917. In 1919 a memorial cross dedicated to him was found near Zonnebeke Lake at 28.D.28.a.40.50. Private Wareing has no known grave and is remembered on panel 159A of the Tyne Cot Memorial.
