Frank George was born to James and Emily Harman on 26 September 1894 at Littlehampton, Sussex. Following his fatherís death in 1903, Frank was admitted to the Orphan Working School in November of that year, aged 9; his older sister, Eleanor May, was also admitted. Frank left the Orphan Working School in July 1909 and the 1911 Census shows him to be living at the Carlton Club in St. James, London, and working as a Page Boy. Frank volunteered for military service and enlisted with the Royal Field Artillery at some time before 26 August 1915 when, records show, he was active on the Western Front in France. Cpl Frank Harman was killed in action on 3 Oct 1918, less than six weeks before the armistice was signed. He is buried at the British Cemetery in the village of Bellicourt, near St Quentin, in France. The cemetery was originally created for British and Australian casualties of the Battle of the St. Quentin canal, which took place between 29 September and 2 October 1918. The cemetery was enlarged after the armistice when graves were brought in from smaller cemeteries and the surrounding battlefields and contains 1,200 casualties of the War. At the time of Corporal Harmanís death his mother (Mrs E M Atkinson, formerly Harman) was living at 46, Upper East Smithfield, London.
