Nothing is known for certain about Fred's private life other than military records show he had been born in Gorton, Manchester and enlisted into the army in Stockport.

The 1901 Census has a record of a Fred Davies, then aged 14, who had been born in Gorton and was living in Stockport, working as a baker's assistant. This is, probably, the same man.

His service number shows that he enlisted in mid 1916. He will have still been in training with the 3rd (Reserve) Battalion when he died from natural causes.
