1908 - Frank Levick - Sheffield United

Death caused by blocking a shot. The ball struck him below the waist, forcing his testicles to become lodged in his abdomen. This caused internal bleeding of the bowel and a subsequent cardiac arrest.

According to the following link

http://www.chrishobbs.com/sheffield2/franklevick1908.htm

it seems that Frank died from heart failure as a result of pneumonia. The only reference to a "footballing injury" is a broken collar bone that was sustained on New Years Day against Newcastle. How the bone was broken is not known

Does anyone know the location of Frank's grave in Tinsley Cemetery as I would not mind a visit there sometime
