Wilfrid Keeble was London representative of A. McKim, Limited. His brother was a John Ronuk Keeble (who conducted a business in floor polishing; he was very likely the John Bright Keeble listed below) and he also had a sister Grace. He had been born 18 December 1883. In 1891, he was 7 years old and lived at Windsor Road in Camberwell, London. His brothers and sisters were noted as Edward Moss, 26, a ‘law clerk solicitors,’ Kate Sarah, 23, a ‘student of education,’ Henry, 21, a ‘law clerk solicitors,’ Herbert G., 17, an apprentice to an electrical engineer, Walter Tree, 15, John Bright, 11, and Oliver Stephen, 8. There also was a servant in the family, Mary Tigg, 36, a general domestic servant. In 1901, he was described as a commercial clerk, living in his native Camberwell, London, with brothers Walter, John and Oliver and sister Grace. He married Fannie M. Goldsbrough in the Marylebone district of London, England, in the summer of 1914. His parents were Henry James (a solicitor) and Jane (nee Bowers) Keeble who had married in Hackney, London, in the last months of 1865. In 1909, he stood 5’10”, had medium complexion, black hair, and brown eyes and was a commercial traveller. He had spent three years in Canada as manager of the Oxo Company; in September 1912 he was noted as a company manager residing at 21 Loreebach (?) Street in Toronto. He had sailed, together with his wife, from Liverpool, England, 23 January 1915 on the s.s. New York. He was noted as a married advertising agent aged 31 and was bound for 14 Farnham Avenue, Toronto, Ontario, where one of his brothers lived. Mr. and Mrs. Keeble survived the sinking of the Lusitania.
