Osmund Wordsworth was traveling with his sister, Ruth as second class passengers on the Lusitania. Both siblings were saved, but Osmund died two years later in World War 1.

He was the fifth child of Rev. Prebendary Christopher Wordsworth and Mary Reeve. He had eight siblings: Dorothy Mary, Christopher Andrewes, Ruth Mary, John Vincent, William Arthur, Susanna Mary, Reginald, and Irene. He was educated at Langton Matravers, Dorset; Winchester School from 1899 to 1906 and at Trinity College, Cambridge from 1906 to 1909, and was a Lecturer, Selwyn College, Cambridge, 1911-14 and a Lecturer, at the Trinity College, Toronto, 1914

Army Time:

Commissioned 2nd Lieut, 9th Bn, Ox & Bucks Light Infantry in June 1915
Transferred as a 2nd Lieut. to the 2st Company MGC and went overseas with it in Sept. 1916
Killed in action on 2 April 1917 near Arras.
Having brought his guns into position for assisting the attack on Henin-sur-Cojeul, he saw that the men at one of them were in difficulty. Refusing to allow any of those of whom he had placed in shelter to carry his instructions he started to go himself, and soon after was seen to fall shot through the heart.

He was the great grandson of port William Wordsworth.
