Report in the Whitchurch Herald 16th November 1918 relating to the death of Frank Viggor

"The sad news that Mr F Viggor, late of Messrs Tupling & Viggor Ironmongers of Whitchurch, has been killed in action in France was received last weekend with very sincere regrets by many personal friends in Whitchurch, and also customers of the firm, to whom he was courteous and obliging. The town has lost by his death a respected tradesman. The gallant soldier came to Whitchurch from Little Budworth, Tarporley, and joined Mr Tupling in the Ironmongery and Coal business in May 1909. He entered the Army in April 1917 in the transport section, later being passed for the infantry and was posted to the 10th Battalion East Kent Regiment. He trained in Edinburgh and afterwards served in the firing line in Egypt, Palestine and France. He was reported missing on September 21st, and has since been reported killed in action on that date. He leaves an elder brother and two sisters, his mother died whilst he was in Egypt."
