Frank Crosfield Frizell was the son of Mr & Mrs H. Frizell, who ran a grocer's shop on the corner of Queens Rd & Woodville Rd, Mumbles. He served as a signalman on H.M.S. Egmont, and was killed in action aged 18 on 11th November 1917 off the coast of Palestine.
The ship was sunk, possibly torpedoed, soon after leaving port. There were a few survivors but Frank was not amongst them, even though he was a strong swimmer.
He is remembered with honour on the Plymouth Naval Memorial and on the Great War Rood Screen Memorial, All Saints' Church, Mumbles.
A letter of condolence sent to Mr. Frizzell, after the loss of his only son, is also available.
