His family moved to the East End of London in 1897, and after a rudimentary education Rosenberg at 14 was apprenticed to an engraver. Wealthy patrons enabled him to study at the Slade School of Art (1911-13) and for nine months in 1914-15 he lived in South Africa. The only poems to be collected in his lifetime were self-published in pamphlet form Night at Day (1912), Youth, (1915), and Moses (1916). Enlisting in the Army in October 1915 he served on the Western Front until his death on night patrol on 1 April 1918.
