Fred Comins

Fred Comins was born in 1891 and attended the School between September 1906 and July 1907. He played football for the School and it was said that he ‘had a powerful kick’. He also played Cricket and was described as ‘a good catch and useful bowler’.

He later served in World War I as a Private in the 7th Battalion West and Cumbria Yeomanry, Borders Regiment and was killed in France on 19 September 1918, aged 27.

His name is recorded on the Grammar School’s War Honours Board — alongside the names of all of the Grammar School’s alumni to die in the First and Second World Wars.
