I’ve found a Medal Roll Index card for Fred as well as an entry in the Soldiers Died in the Great War collection. You can include his service number in the keyword box on the search form.
Many of the WWI Service records were destroyed in the Blitz so you may not be able to find a service record for him.
Hope you find the records interesting.

Karen

But your SEARCH can’t find him, surprised not located via Service No. and Regiment.
He was from Keighley, West Yorkshire.

Some say the Shepherd’s came from Ireland and Scotland. Elijah Washington Shepherd seemed to have lived in Sullivan County, Indiana most of his life but where were his parents from? I think his dad’s name was Eli W. Shepherd. His mother was Lucy Stark. Elijah married Seba Elizabeth Wright. I do not know anymore about his roots.
