Bank: National Provincial Bank of England
Place of work: Liverpool Whitechapel branch
Died: 16 June 1915
Frank Noel Waterhouse was born on 4 November 1894, the son of the Reverend George E Waterhouse, a Wesleyan minister, and his wife Annie. Annie had an uncle who was a branch manager, and later a director, of National Provincial Bank of England. It was possibly through this family connection that Waterhouse secured an apprenticeship with the bank, starting work at its Liverpool branch in July 1911, when he was 16. He completed his apprenticeship three years later, and was promoted to a clerkship.
Early in the First World War Waterhouse left his job at the bank's Liverpool Whitechapel branch to join the army, serving as a Private in The King's (Liverpool Regiment). He was killed in action in Flanders on 16 June 1915. He was 20 years old.
