Frank Walker

Bank: Williams Deacon's Bank

Place of work: Blackpool branch

Died: 2 November 1944


Frank Bingley Walker was born in 1904, the son of George Dutton Walker, a civil engineer and surveyor, and his wife Annie. He had an older brother, Herbert. In 1922 he went to work for Williams Deacon's Bank. 


During the Second World War Walker left his job at the bank's Blackpool branch to go on military service, becoming a Lieutenant in the Royal Scots. He was later remembered by one of his fellow officers as 'a splendid colleague, slightly older than the rest of the Lieutenants in the Battalion, a pipe smoker, quite reflective in demeanour, whose peacetime hobby was mountaineering.' 


Lieutenant Walker was killed in action in the Netherlands on 2 November 1944. He was 40 years old. 


Frank Walker is commemorated on a bank war memorial at Hardman Boulevard office, Manchester.
