Clement Duncanson Fishwick was born in Liverpool on 7 June 1893, the son of James Fishwick, a clerk for the Mersey Docks and Harbours Board, and his wife Theresa. He was educated at the Catholic Institute, Liverpool. In 1909 he went to work for Parr's Bank at its Wigan branch. In early 1913 he moved to St Helens branch.

In November 1914 Fishwick left the bank to join the army, serving as a Private in The King's (Liverpool Regiment). He fought on the Somme, and was killed in a charge there on 30 July 1916.
