Ivor Gurney, a gifted chorister, composer and poet, was born in 1890. His musical studies were interrupted by the war, during which he suffered a nervous breakdown in 1918. He spent the last fifteen years of his life in mental hospitals, dying of tuberculosis in 1937. Isaac Rosenberg was born in 1890 and grew up in London's East End. He studied painting at the Slade School before enlisting in the army in 1915. He was killed at the Somme in 1918.
