Frederick originated from Newcastle-under-Lyme, the son of George and Selena. By the time of the Great War, he was living with his wife, Elizabeth, at 6 Grundey Street, Hazel Grove. He had his own business as a bootmaker and repairer. He enlisted at Chester on 25 April 1916 and was killed in action during the major German attack described here.

In the early 1920s, when the War Graves Commission was collating its casualty information, George Clarke was living at London Place, Stockport. Frederick's mother had died by this time.

Further information about Frederick, including a photograph, can be found in the book "Hazel Grove to Armageddon" by John Eaton.
