Frederick Thomas Bolland was born in Claverley in 1892 where he was baptised at the Parich Church on 24th April. He was the son of John Martin Bolland and his wife Mary. The Bollands were farmers, latterly at The Wellings, Claverley. John Martin died towards the end of 1911. Mary retired to 22, Victoria Road, Bradmore, Wolverhampton. Frederick's brother Richard is also commemorated on the Claverley War Memorials.

Frederick probably joined up at the start of the war. He served with the Staffordshire Yeomanry and was to Egypt in November 1915. He died (probably of 'natural causes') on 3rd May, 1916 and is buried in Cairo War Memorial Cemetery.

Private Frederick Thomas Bolland, 2705, Staffordshire Yeomanry, was awarded the Victory and British Medals and the 1915 Star.
