Biography

Family background

Frederick Noble was born in 1886 at Stubbing Moor, Collingham, the son of William and Hannah Noble and at the time of the census in 1891, the family were still living at Stubbing Moor. By 1901 the family had moved to Manns Row, Scarcroft and the move away from Collingham perhaps explains why his name does not appear on the village War Memorial. In 1911, Frederick was boarding with the Watkin family at Wetherby Road, Roundhay, Leeds and was working as a gardener/domestic. Later that year, Frederick married Kathleen Amy Cogan in Thorner Parish Church.

Service record

We think Frederick enlisted around July 1916 and we know he served first in the Army Cycle Corp as Private 21139 F Noble, but later transferred to The King's (Liverpool Regiment) serving in the 18th, 19th and 2/6th Battalions of that regiment at various times.

Frederick died as a result of wounds in 1918 - there is a discrepancy of dates between two sources of information. The Soldiers Died in the Great War database records his death on 7th Sept 1918, while the Commonwealth War Graves Commission records the death as being on the 17th Sept 1918. However, Army Form B104-82 in the possession of the family clearly shows that Frederick died on the 17th Sept 1918 at the 2nd Canadian General Hospital in Le Treport. Frederick's body was buried in the Mont Huon Military Cemetery in Le Treport, France.
