Private Ferdinand Dieterich (or Dieterick) was an English soldier of the British Army who died during the First World War.

He was born in 1899, in Chorlton, the son of German-born William, a hotel waiter, and Kate Dieterich (née McKenzie), of Oban, Scotland. At the time of the 1911 census, the Dieterich family were residing at 9 Palmerston Street.

Dieterich died on 28 June 1918, on the Western Front, while serving with the 1/7th Battalion, The King's (Liverpool Regiment). He had previously belonged to the Lancashire Hussars Yeomanry.[1] An older brother, William, a gunner with the Royal Field Artillery, died a month later, on 22 July.

He is buried in Houchin British Cemetery, France.
