Benjamin Fred Gumbleton was a son of Fred Gumbleton and his wife Ada Francis Elizabeth, nee Lawrence. He was born in 1917 in the Clutton, Dorset, Registration District. Fred Gumbleton was a son of John Gumbleton, of Shaftesbury, Dorset, and his wife Mary, nee Gray. He was born in 1880, in the Shaftessbury Registration District, and baptised on 7 Mar 1880, at St James' Church, Shaftesbury.

The 1861 census shows him living with his parents and siblings at 61 St James St, Shaftesbury.

In 1898, he married Rosina Matilda Andrews in the Southampton, Hampshire, Registration District. They went on to have five children.

In 1900, he was summoned to the County Petty Sessions Court, for not contributing to the support of his father, who was in receipt of Poor Relief. He had been called upon to pay 1s a week towards his father's support, out of his weekly wages of 18s. Fred explained that he had to pay 5s a week rent, his wife was constantly ill, and he had to pay 6d a gallon for potatoes and 1s 11d per cwt for coal. He had no garden to his house (so could not feed his family in that way) and contended he could not afford to pay 1s a week to his father. The bench ordered him to pay 6d a week only.

In the 1901 census, his wife and children were visitors in a household in Southampton, but he was living with his parents at 46, Poor Yard, Shaftesbury, where he was working as a labourer in the iron works.

By 1911, Fred, together with his wife and chldren, were living at 3, Lime Tree Terrace, Crown St, Shirley, Southampton, Hampshire. He was described as a stone sawyer.

In 1924, his wife died, in Southampton. However, in 1930, he was married for a second time: his spouse was Elizabeth Louisa Brown. The 1839 register shows them living in a household in Southampton.

Fred died in Southampton in 1957. His widow lived until 1972.
