Frederick Green was born in Bournemouth, Hampshire, on 14 Jul 1876 the son of Frederick Green and Mary Green (nee Emery). By 1881 the family were living near Tillhays, Iwerne Minster, Shaftesbury, Dorset.  Frederick married Alice Emily Grist at Somerley, Ringwood, Hampshire, on 11 Apr 1898. Frederick worked as a Gamekeeper in Shefford, Nottinghamshire, for a while before returning to Somerley.  He enlisted on 31 Aug 1916 but was not mobilized until 27 Nov 1916 when he joined the Royal Field Artillery as a Gunner (Service No. 195790).  He served in France and Flanders with the 84th Brigade and was eventually discharged on 4 Mar 1919 and awarded the Victory and British War Medals.  By the time of the 1939 Register he was living at 17 Clyde Grove, Sodbury, Gloucestershire, described as a Farmer (Incapacitated) and a Widower.  No record has been found as to the date of his death.  His brother, Lewis Green, also served in the conflict and both names are on a Roll of Honour published privately in Iwerne Minster.
