Hubert was born in Rathcline on the 9 August 1887. He appears to have originally emigrated to Canada, c. 1913 (according to what appears to be his 1921 Census entry); interestingly, Hubert married his wife, Catherine Dowd, originally from Co. Longford but living in Clarinda Park, Kingstown (Dun Laoghaire) on the 7 December 1915, likely when he was on leave. 

Prior to enlistment, Hubert was working as a carpenter. 

Pte Moncrieff enlisted for war service at Valcartier, B.C. in September 1914; he initially joined the 103rd Calgary Rifles before being drafted into the 10th Battalion. He served overseas in France. He had been listed as Missing in action at one point in 1915, but soon rejoined his regiment and completed the war, returning to Canada in 1919.

Parents Names: Son of Hugh Moncrieff and Wilheminia/ Minnie (née Jones), Glebe, Lanesborough.
Notes: Hubert was Church of Ireland, whilst Catherine Dowd was Roman Catholic - they married in a Catholic chapel.
