The Malvern News reported in April 1916: “Mr and Mrs Frederick Schofield of Mayfield Cottage, Cowleigh Road have been informed that their son Gnr R Schofield RFA has died of wounds in hospital. He joined the colours after the outbreak of war. His elder brother Thomas of the Worcestershire Regt [1] has been missing since August.” The Cowleigh Parish Magazine added that the last his parents had heard of him was that he managed to scribble a few lines to his parents while lying out on the battlefield wounded and waiting to be picked up by the stretcher-bearers.
