Frederick Howe was the son of Boaz and Eliza Howe of Dunkirk. He was baptised in May 1898, and in the 1911 census he was 13, living with his parents in Stoney Road. His father Boaz was a general labourer, as was his 15 year old brother Edward. His two older sisters Eliza and Henrietta were domestic servants.
Frederick would have been around 18 when he died on the Somme in 1916.
He is remembered with honour at Thiepval Memorial, Somme, France, where his name appears on panel 7C, and on the war memorial in Dunkirk Churchyard.
