Date of Death:

The name of F Mayo appears on the Stockport War Memorial but it has not been possible to identify him with certainty. Official records only indicate one man with this initial who died serving with the Manchesters. This was Private Frank Mayo who died on 20 October 1917 from wounds received whilst serving with the Regiment's 12th  Battalion. He had been born in Longsight and enlisted in Manchester, originally into the Duke of Lancaster's Yeomanry - a Territorial cavalry unit. The Yeomanry unit was disbanded only a month before Private Mayo died and all the men were transferred to the 12th Manchesters.

Frank Mayo was 34 and died at an Army field hospital near the Belgian town of Poperinghe. He is buried at Dozinghem Military Cemetery. He was married to Lilian who, after the War, was living at 70 Bonsall Street, Hulme, Manchester. If this is the man commemorated on the Stockport Memorial then his connection with the town is unknown.
