Frederick William Ellis was born on 5 February 1882, the son of Harry Frederick Ellis and his wife Eliza Louisa. In May 1900, when he was 18 years old, he left his job with Messrs J M Wotherspoon & Co to take a job as teller in the London Bloomsbury branch of London & Westminster Bank. In November 1905 he was appointed a 4th class clerk at London Marylebone branch, and the following July he returned to Bloomsbury, this time as a 4th class clerk. In 1909 London & Westminster Bank merged with London & County Bank, and Ellis became an employee of the enlarged London County & Westminster Bank. In December 1914 he became a 3rd class clerk at London Brompton Square branch. He was also a member of the bank's staff sports club.
In January 1917 Ellis left the bank to join the army, and by 1918 he was a Second Lieutenant in the London Regiment. He was killed in action in France on 3 March 1918. He was 36 years old.
