Are you certain that you are looking for the correct person, or the photograph that you have is of the same person. Acle is in Blofield registration district, a Frederick Goodrum was born in that district June quarter 1862. There were though a couple of other Frederick Goodrum registered in Norfolk around that time although in different districts, none were registered in 1863.

In 1901 there is a Frederick Goodrum age 38, born Acle, single, living with a brother John and family in New Road Acle. I would say that this is the one whose birth was registered in Blofield 1862. This person can not be found in 1911 but there is a death registered in the Blofield district June 1906, GRO ref. 4b, 127 of a Frederick Goodrum age 43, which is probably the one quoted above in 1901.

I can see in 1911 another Frederick Goodrum born in Acle, slightly older who is married and living with his family in Yorkshire. There are also other Fred. Goodrums in Norfolk born and living elswhere of around the correct age
