Albert Ernest Cook
Albert Ernest Cook was born in Pontypridd, Glamorgan, on 5 March 1894 to Thomas Cook and Thirza née Trinder. Shortly afterwards the family moved to Edgeworth, Gloucestershire, where he was baptised on 29 July the same year. Thomas was a labourer and the family moved again, probably to seek work, for by 1901 they were living in Vicarage Lane, Frampton. At the time of the 1911 census, Albert was was a farm labourer but was unfortunately in Gloucester Royal Infirmary; his family had moved again, this time to The Green, to the south of Frampton Court.
Although Albert's war service is commemorated on the plaque in the village hall along with that of his older brother, William John, no records have been found relating to it.
Following the war, Albert returned to Frampton for a few years. At the time of his mother's death in 1929 he was employed as a 'postal servant'. Albert and his wife, Emily, had two sons, Norman and Sidney. Albert Ernest Cook died in Gloucester Royal Infirmary on 29 September 1945, having lived at 62 Coney Hill Road in the city, and was buried on 3 October in St Mary's churchyard, Frampton.
