Albert Edward was born to Jabez and Marina Hussey on 1 September 1899 at Tooting in Surrey. Following his father’s death in 1903, Albert was admitted to the Alexandra Orphanage on 19 Feb 1904, aged 4. He left the Orphan Working School and Alexandra Orphanage on 11 June 1914 when he was fourteen. It is likely that Frank enlisted for military service after his eighteenth birthday in September 1917. He joined the 21st Battalion, Duke of Cambridge’s Own (Middlesex Regiment). Private Albert Hussey was killed in action on 9 April 1918, when he was still 18. He is commemorated on the Ploegsteert Memorial, near Ieper (formerly Ypres) in Belgium, along with 11,000 United Kingdom and South African servicemen who died nearby and have no known grave.
