Frederick Francis Hindley was born on 4 August 1884 and his birth was registered in East Retford.  He married Alice Brewer in 1907 in Sculcoates, near Hull and they had two children Francis Frederick, born in 1909 and Alice in 1911.

On the 1911 census his wife and family were living at 3 Crystal Avenue, Subway Street, Hull.  No trace can be found of Frederick on the 1911 census, but being a trawlerman he was possibly at sea.

Frederick served as a Skipper in the Royal Navy Reserve.  He passed through Peterborough East Station on 29 October 1916 and wrote in the visitors’ book “Just a line, thanking the Ladies in attendance for their kindness & consideration, wishing it every success in its good services.”

He was awarded the Star, British War and Allied Victory Medals.  He received a Long Service Good Conduct Medal on 26 February 1926, and was still listed as a Skipper with the Royal Navy Reserve.

We traced him in the 1939 Register to 31 New Street, Kingston on Hull.  He is recorded as a retired fisherman and now an air construction labourer and a Police Special Constable at Garden Street Police Station.  Alice and three of their children, Hilda, Eric and Edna, are living at the same address.

Frederick died in Hull aged 73 in 1957.
