It is surprising that so little is known about this composer considering the large number of compositions located.
From odd snippets here-and-there on Internet, Frederick Younge Gilbert was a composer of music hall songs of which the best known being The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo (1892) made famous by Charles Coborn and published by Francis, Day & Hunter. That song is also given in 60 Old-Time Variety Songs.
He was a theatrical agent with Ambrose Maynard and Charles Roberts before setting up his own agency. In addition to Charles Coborn, he wrote for many other leading music hall artists of the day such as Vesta Tilley, Gus Elen and Tom Costello.
He died in Sandgate, Kent.
