Born 10 December 1895 at Hursley, Hampshire (Find My Past records place of birth as Winchester, Hampshire and residence as Hursley, Hampshire).
Enlisted at Alnwick on 2 September 1914 when he was recorded as living at West Lilburn.
The 1911 Census records Frederick as living at Merdon Hursley, Winchester, Hampshire. Frederick was reported to be a domestic gardener. He and a brother and two sisters were living with a married brother and his family at the time.
That Frederick was living at West Lilburn at the time of enlisting and that his occupation was domestic gardener, he is thought to have been working as a gardener on the Lilburn Tower Estate (as were Bertram Reinfred BARRON, Tom PYBUS and Richard RIDDING).
