About Frank

Frank Savage was born in The United States of America in 1883, the son of John and Sarah Savage.  His mother died when he was quite young, and his father re-married in 1899.

Frank married Louisa Winterburn in Liverpool on the 8th September 1907, and in 1915, they lived at 16, Rothsay Street, Liverpool, Lancashire.

He served as a fireman in the Engineering Department on board the Lusitania and he was killed when she was sunk.

His body was never recovered and identified and his name is embossed on the Mercantile Marine Memorial at Tower Hill, London.  He was aged 32 years.

Louisa Savage was sent the balance of pay owing to her late husband, and this was calculated on his sea service from 17th April 1915, until 8th May - 24 hours after the liner had foundered.  The Liverpool and London War Risks Insurance Association Limited also granted her an annual pension which amounted to £23-5s-4d. (£23.26½p.), payable at the rate of £1-18s-10d. (£1.94p.) per month.
