Stephen Barkley Cooke was born in 1889 to Sydney Mitchell and Annie Raikes Cooke (née Barkley), of Burwood Park Road, Hersham, Walton, Surrey. His father was a stock broker.
In 1901, he attended Shrewsbury House when it was situated on Maple Road, Surbiton.
In 1909 he travelled to Ceylon; when the war started, he joined the Ceylon Mounted Rifles Corps. He died in Ceylon on the 4th of June, 1915 - possibly of sunstroke, aged 28 years.
