He does not appear in the Commonwealth War Graves records.  My subscription to Ancestry does not cover the UK, but their records list over 100 Frank Hirst hits, so likely 10-20 individuals [my guess] odf that name saw service in WWI.  Perhaps a member with an Ancestry.UK account could help.

In case you're interested, he joined the RFC 20/7/16, arrived in France 7/12/16 and died while on leave according to his record, in Huddersfield military hospital.
