Frederick Cooper was the son of Caleb and Leah Cooper of 36 Alma Street, Cradley. He worked in his father's newspaper shop at Overend. He enlisted in 1917 and was sent to the Wiltshires before joining the 100th Company of the Machine Gun Corps. They were attached to the 58th Division in September 1918 and were engaged in the struggle for Epehy, the village in front of and guarding the Hindenburg Line. It was eventually captured and this allowed the British forces to attack and break through the Line on the 29th September. Private Frederick Cooper was wounded and died on this day of success and is buried at Roisel Communal Cemetery (I K 9). He was 19 years of age and is commemorated on the Cradley and Halesowen Memorials.
