FRED SHUTT (1898 - 1962)


Two photographs of FRED that were taken in different locations

In March 2008, whilst sorting through a box of old photos, I came across the following one which is the earliest photo of Fred I have come across. I would say that the photo was taken circa 1918 - 1919 when Fred was in the Royal Navy. This is a copy of his service record which I obtained in January 2016. It is interesting to note that the record gives his date of birth as 8th August 1897 when it should be 1898. My research with BMD revealed that FRED SHUTT was born in the September quarter of 1898 (Sheffield GRO Volume 9c Page 596).




The 1911 UK Census has the following information on Fred

He married in late 1921 - (Marriages Dec 1921 Mills Violet Fred Shutt Sheffield Volume 9c Page 1089) 

In the inter war years Fred worked for the London & North Eastern Railway. This is a return from the London & North Eastern Railway dated 31st October 1939. It shows that Fred had been employed with them since 21st October 1919. 

In September 2008 I received further information on Fred's brothers and sisters

As the surname is relatively rare in Sheffield, I conducted further research of the 1881 Census for the name SHUTT
