  Stonehenge: "As for name changes, there was a chess player before WW1 called F. L. Anspach. The ever unreliable Chessgames site gives his full name as Frederick Lee Anspach. In fact he was Frederick Law Anspach. Anspach disappears from the chess records in about 1914, but after the war Surrey field a player by the name of F. L. Armstrong. In the book, 'The church of Saint Bride', there is a record of an inscription, "FREDERICK LAW ARMSTRONG, General Secretary of the Newspaper Society, WHO DIED JULY 24th 1925." The 'British and Colonial Printer and Stationer: And Newspaper Press' for 1925 reported his death, "Mr. F. L. Armstrong. ... the world and from all ranks of people bear testimony to the high place which the late Mr. F.L. Armstrong won for himself in newspaper and allied trade circles. ... From chess circles also Mr. Armstrong is sadly missed."

The London Gazette's record of deed polls has the explanation.

Anspach, like the Royal Family, gave up his German surname and adopted a British one."

  MissScarlett: Western Daily Press, July 21st 1925, p.9:

<F. L. Armstrong, General Secretary of the Newspaper Society, underwent an operation for internal trouble at King's College Hospital, Denmark Hill, London, yesterday. On inquiry last evening it was ascertained that he was fairly comfortable.>

Western Daily Press, July 24th 1925, p.12:

<DEATH OF F. L. ARMSTRONG. Mr F. L. Armstrong. General Secretary to the Newspaper Society, passed away early this morning in King's College Hospital, where he was operated upon last Monday.>

Dead comfortable. Condition stable.
