Correct however 413 was merged with 46 Coy. in 1916 so ceased to exist after that.

As he had the bar with his Star I am assuming he went straight to the front line and joined the Battle of the Aisne, as the bar was only given to soldiers under fire.
Just to clarify, the bar or clasp & rose as it's called went to men who served in a theatre of war
from 5/8/14-30/11/14.
He didn't have to be at the Front although most men were.
Your man arrived 13/11/14 when the retreat from Mons & it's ensuing battles including the Aisne
were over.
The LLT says this:

The addresses are written against every entry.
On line 2 are the witnesses.
There may have been lanes & tracks that had no name
so a description of where they were would be the next best thing.

It's the one above that says graveyard, perhaps he was the grave digger.
Your couple appear to have Chapelane as their address.

Men listed on Memorials had no known grave.
Possibly buried as "known unto God"

He was wounded in the Vallee des Zouaves which ran South of Souchez towards Arras.
His Btn. were working on reserve trenches in the Valley when they were shelled.
This happened from the 22nd. April to the 28th. when they were relieved.
The 22nd. was the worst day when 23 OR's were wounded.
The importance of these positions became clear the following month when the Germans
launched an attack on Vimy Ridge East of the Valley.

Pre-war it is. I would suggest around 1910-12.

A bit earlier I would suggest, mid-late 1890's.
