Frederick was my mother’s cousin, the son of her father’s brother Alfred. According to the inscription on the back this was taken in 1914 – but as he was born in 1900 this would have made him well below age.
He was born in Wolstanton, Staffordshire, UK, and survived both wars to die in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, UK in 1974. By trade he was a baker.
I have already posted a photo of his parents, Alfred Coates and Lizzie (Machin).
