Frederick Timbrell lived with his wife at 132 Park Row, Cradley, and enlisted in the Army Veterinary Corps. At the time the army had over a million horses, ponies and mules and large numbers were inevitably sick. In 1918 he was stationed with the 10th Veterinary Evacuating Station Service and after the armistice became part of the army of occupation in Bonn. On the 21st June he was sent to a Field Ambulance and then to 29th Casualty Clearing Station, suffering possibly from the great flu pandemic. He died on the 7th July 1919. Frederick Timbrell was 30 years of age and is buried in Cologne Southern Cemetery (XII C 7). He is commemorated on the Cradley and Halesowen Memorials.
