Bert Ferraby was born in Halesowen where he lived with his wife, Clara May who originated from Pontefract. He was an early volunteer in 1914 for the Worcesters and joined the 9th (Service) Battalion which was sent out to Gallipoli in the relief force of the Summer of 1915. The landings and subsequent battles were strongly opposed by the Turks and the conditions in terms of terrain and weather were very difficult. Private Bert Ferraby was probably shot by a sniper while on duty in the trenches and died on the 22 November 1915 at the age of 19. He is buried in Azmak Cemetery (II D 18) and commemorated on the Cradley and Halesowen Memorials.
