Frederick along with his brother Reginald were admitted to the Sutton High/Sutton Secondary/Regent Street/Keppel Place/Mount Street Schools on 7 June 1907. At this time the family were living at 18 Wilton Street, Stoke (most likely Stoke Demeral), Plymouth.

Frederick John emigrated to Canada, possibly during 1910, but as yet have found nothing to support this.

Frederick John a Student whose apparent age was 23 years 11 months was Drafted under the Military Service Act, 1917 on 19 April 1918. He was subsequently discharged on 4 October 1918. At the time of the draft he was living with his father John at 1618 – 4th Avenue, W. Calgary, Alberta.

It is widely reported in family trees on Ancestry.com that Frederick John died on 5 December 1989 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. However as yet I have not found any records to confirm this.
