Graver moved quickly around the football circuit after leaving Burnhope Institute to join Darlington in June 1920 and stayed for one season before leaving for North Eastern League Club Shildon in August 1921. Grimsby Town signed him in May 1922, but scored just once in six League games, before he returned to North Eastern League football with West Stanley in May 1923. After scoring forty-one goals for them, he joined Leeds United in May 1924. He could not establish himself at Elland Road, and soon moved to Southend United in May 1925. He enjoyed a fairly productive spell, but only managed one goal in ten League games, at Roots Hall, before returning once more to the North-East, signing for Wallsend in 1926. His sons, Andy and Alf, both played for Lincoln City. Andy Graver was a well known and prolific goal-scorer and he holds the Lincoln City aggregate League goal scoring record with one hundred and forty-four goals in three spells with the club. Fred Graver died in 1950.
