Michael was born to Dutch Jewish parents from Amsterdam. He was born in Whitechapel in 1871. He appeared on the 1911 Census as a greengrocer, and was living at 83 Parnell Road, Bow. He died of pneumonia at Bethnal Green Military Hospital on 8 August 1915. Given that he does not have a Medal Index Card, it would appear he was a Home Service soldier who died before having the opportunity of going overseas, and obtaining a campaign medal.
