Frederick Charles Dibben was born in Fontmell Magna, Shaftesbury, Dorset, in 1885 and baptised there on 8 Mar 1885 the son of Edwin John Dibben and Ellen Dibben (nee Pike).  He lived his early life in Fontmell Magna and Iwerne Minster, Shaftesbury, Dorset.   By 1911 he was working in Yoxall, Staffordshire as a Kitchen Gardener.   He enlisted and served with the 489th (Heavy Transport) Company of the Army Service Corps with the rank of Driver (Service No. T/326050).  There is no indication in which theatre of war he served or if he was awarded any relevant medals.   The Absent Voter List of 1919 shows him still serving in the Army but showing his home address as Shillingstone Lodge, Shillingstone, Dorset.  Regrettably his death was registered in Shaftesbury, Dorset, in 1931 and he was buried at St. Mary's Church, Iwerne Minster, on 20 Mar 1931.   It is noted he remained single throughout his short life. His brothers, Edgar John Dibben and Edwin George Dibben, also served in the conflict.  All their names appear on a Roll of Honour published privately in Iwerne Minster.
