Fred's father, Edward Hibbert, had been born in Matlock but, by the time of the 1901 Census, had moved to the Stockport area and was working as a "fur former", probably in the local hat making industry. He was then aged 37. He was married to Selina, 38 and they had been living in the area for some time as Fred, then aged 4, had been born in the town.

Fred's service number suggests he probably enlisted during 1916 and he was killed two years later at the Battle of the Lys.
