Frederick Bryant entered Portsmouth Dockyards as a shipwright apprentice in 1893. He was then a student at Royal Naval College in Greenwich until 1901. He joined later in London the Direction of Naval Constructions of the Admiralty for ten years and then was appointed to Devonport Dockyard in charge of the drawing office. During his four years' stay, Bryant was engaged with the battleships Warsprite, Royal Oak and Centurion. In 1915, he returned to the Admiralty where he eventually served as the Senior Constructor at the Portsmouth Dockyard and there was engaged with submarines. In 1928, Bryant was promoted to Assistant Director of Naval Constructions and in 1932 he took over as the Deputy Director of Naval Constructions of the Admiralty until retirement in 1938. Five years earlier, Bryant had been elected to the Council of the Institution of Naval Architects, having been a Member of the Institution from 1910. He was also associated with the Engineering Divisional Council of the British Standards Institution.

In 1936, the long absence of the Director of Naval Constructions placed a heavy burden on Bryant; for six months he was acting head of the department. His task was rendered greater by the re-armament program which was then beginning, and his services were of great value to the Admiralty in these difficult circumstances. After retirement in 1938, Bryant returned soon to the Admiralty as an additional assistant director during the difficult war years. Questions of general policy, staffing and administration were then entrusted to him; his previous experience enabled him to cope with this work with an outstanding success. Bryant received the honor of O.B.E. in 1918, and in 1936 became a Companion of the Bath. One of his important features was his great exertions on behalf of his colleagues, which were successful in improving their conditions and obtaining more adequate recognition for their work.
