Herbert Goodall Coe was the second son of William and Phoebe (née Ellis) Coe. He was educated at Timaru Main School. Herbert married Doris Constance Harrison in 1924. His brother Frederick Ellis Coe enlisted for service in World War I. The Methodist Church of Timaru placed a handsome window in the Bank Street Church as a memorial for the war victims of the congregations. Apart from the names of the fallen appearing on the window, the names of all who served were inscribed in a book which was to be preserved in the Church. Included in the names was that of Herbert Goodall Coe.
