Wilfred was born in Birmingham in 1882, the son of Samuel J. and Georgiana Bolton. At some point, he married a lady called Harriet, and they moved to 52 Navigation Street, Wolverhampton, but I have been unable to confirm further details.

He enlisted with the 1st Battalion of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment (number 7364), but was killed in action on 17 January 1915 at St Yves. He is buried at the Prowse Point Military Cemetery in Belgium.
