From "The Times" London, England, Tuesday, October 10, 1916, pg. 10: listed under "List of casualties", 1st column, 3rd entry:

"Second Lieutenant Frederick William Goldberg, Queen's (Royal West Surrey Regiment), attached Royal Dublin Fusiliers, who fell on October 3, aged 34, was the youngest son of Mr. L. Goldberg, of Newdigate, Surrey, and of 23, Cadogan-gardens. He was educated at Charterhouse and at University College, Oxford, where he graduated with honours in Jurisprudence. He was afterwards called to the Bar, and from July, 1910, he held an appointment on the staff of the Public Trustee. In June, 1915, he joined the Inns of Court O.T.C., and in November of that year he received his commission in the Queen's. In May, 1916, he was sent to Egypt, and from there to another front, where he was attached to the Royal Dublin Fusiliers. Keen in all games, he represented his college at cricket, association football, hockey, and lawn tennis, and obtained his half-blue for hockey and lawn tennis. Later he got his international cap for hockey, and he was a well-known player at the big London lawn tennis meetings. His elder brother, Second Lieutenant H. W. Goldberg, of the same regiment, was killed in France in July, 1915"
