Arthur was born in Swinton and, at the time of the 1901 Census, was still living there and working as a gardener. Later, he married Helena. After the war, she was living at South Oak Lane, Fulshaw, Wilmslow, Cheshire, but it is not known if this was their family home.

Other than the fact he enlisted in Stockport, his connection with the town is not known. Presumably he was living or working here. Arthur was killed during an attack during the Battle of Messines. He has no known grave.
