There are only two mentions of Frank in the coverage of the war in the Shipley Times & Express, both very brief. On 14 July 1916, he is listed among the Baildon men wounded in the battle of the Somme, Frank having been hurt ‘in the face and shoulder.’ On 2 November 1917, the paper reported: Much sympathy is felt by the many friends of Mr and Mrs C H Beech of Bank Crest, in the loss they have sustained by the death in action of their only son L Cpl Frank Beech, of the West Yorkshire Regt, who was 20 years of age.
