    Hi John,
    Frank was my great grandmother’s brother, she adored him, my grandfather was then named after him also being Frank William Johnson Lynam. I would love to have the penny if you still have it?
    Kind Regards,
    Colette Lynam

    In my late grandmother’s posessions, I’ve found a death penny for Frank William Thomas Johnson. Who died on the Somme on 1/7/1916. We have no knowledge of Frank being a relative of our family. If anyone knows any relatives who would like to have the death penny, I will send it to them.
