He was born in Kensington, the son of Italian-born Henry (Enrice) and Annie Gerelli (née Foy), of Scotland. His father had arrived in Britain in 1906, and served from 1916 with the Hampshire Regiment but was classified as an 'enemy alien' during the Second World War.[1]

Aged 19, Gerelli died on 25 March 1945, during the invasion of Germany, while serving with the 5th Battalion, The Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders.

He is buried in Reichswald Forest War Cemetery.
