Story

Frederick was born in Kings Cross, London and baptised on 20th April 1879. His father Albert Alma Gardiner was a publican and his mother was Eliza nee Dyer. As a young man, Frederick was employed as a billiard marker. On 21st April 1907, Frederick married Georgiana Martha Faulkner, a barmaid, at the Parish Church in Brighton. Georgiana was described as a spinster on the marriage certificate but she had a daughter Lilian Rose in 1902. No father is named on her baptism record. However in 1911, Lilian was described as Frederick’s daughter. The couple had two further children, Albert Henry b1908 and Francis Frederick b1910. In World War I, Frederick joined the Labour Corps (reg. no 309061) as a private but was soon transferred to the Army Service Corps (reg. no SS19118) and served in France from October 1915. He was discharged on 28th May 1918. He started working as a confectioner and tobacconist in Greenwich. Between 1921 and 1924, the family moved to Worthing, living with Frederick’s mother Eliza at “Lucetta” 23 Shakespeare Road. He died in May 1928 and at some point after that, Georgiana claimed for a pension from the Army.
