Frank J. Endean
Person Male Born 6/12/1904 Died 20/4/1941
Fireman killed as a result of an air raid on Old Palace School, Bow, E3 on 20 April 1941.
Our colleague Andrew Behan has kindly researched this man: Auxiliary Fireman Frank James Endean was born on 6 December 1904 in Bromley, Kent, the younger son of Frank James Endean and Rose Endean née Taylor. His father was a Woollen Warehouseman. The 1911 census shows the family living at 'Devon', Salisbury Road, Bromley, but directories from 1915 onwards list them at 40 Salisbury Road, Bromley. In mid 1934 he married Daisy Ellen Brooks in Sevenoaks, Kent.
The 1939 England and Wales Register records them living at 34 Aviemore Way, Beckenham, Kent and giving his occupation as Correspondence Clerk, Woollen Merchant. It also gives his AFS Serial Number as No.190 at Beckenham. He was attached to the Stanhope Grove Fire Station. He died when a German bomb landed on Auxiliary Fire Service Sub Station 24U, which was housed in Old Palace LCC School, St. Leonards Street, Poplar, aged 36 years, on 20 April 1941. He was buried at Beckenham Cemetery and Crematorium, Elmers End Road, Beckenham, BR3 4TD.
