Frank Hamilton Lacey was born in 1879, the son of Thomas Samuel Lacey (see below).

After the war, Lacey returned to Manchester and was appointed to the honorary staff of St Mary's, where he remained until his retirement in 1946. Lacey was also consultant gynaecologist to Crumpsall Hospital and Monsall Fever Hospital, and gynaecologist to Christie Hospital. He was honorary lecturer in clinical obstetrics at the University of Manchester, where he developed an unusual but popular teaching style.
