In his short life, he was a fan of Coursing - and he was a member of the Isle of Ely Club up until his death. He also worked for a short while as a Kennel Attendant, no doubt connected to the coursing club.
Wilfred died in December 1929, from a combination of three conditions which would have bore him extreme pain. He had already had a kidney removed at Addenbrookes Hospital three months before. His obituary noted that he died "following a long and painful illness borne with great cheerfulness and courage".
He was a Student at The Boy's National School on Silver Street, Ely and he had also attended the Wesleyan Chapel and Sunday School.
Wilfred was a talented artist, and a number of his drawings have survived showing his love of coursing and horses.
