At the start of the 1st world war Frederick volunteered for the Armed Forces, which he needn't have done as he had a reserved occupation which would have exempted him from active service had he chosen not to volunteer, and according to his daughter (Florence Jenner) his wife was not too pleased with him going. He was away from home for five years and his job in the army was to drive ammunition to the front lines. After the war ended he settled back into civilian life and the family moved back to Bristol, where he became a Painter and Decorator, and where they had another two children, Arthur and Kenneth Jenner.
On moving back to Bristol they first moved to 39 Ashley Road, then Thicket Avenue and then onto Ridgeway Avenue, Bristol. They then settled at 'The Haven', Middle Road, Staple Hill, Bristol, from where their children married. Lillian and Frederick retired to 10 West Park Road, Downend, Bristol, but later moved to 35 Hillside Drive, Pontypool, Monmouthshire, where in 1954 he died.
