In 1910 Fennings married Alice Emma Jean Deering. They had two children together: Jean, born in 1912, and Jack, born in 1915.
In February 1917 Fennings left the bank to go on active service as a Gunner in the Royal Field Artillery. He was killed in action on the Western Front on 26 March 1918. He was 33 years old. His two children subsequently became beneficiaries of the Bank Clerks' Orphanage, which paid grants to fund the education of the sons and daughters of deceased bank workers.
