Born at Grimsby, England on 19 January 1878, he came to Canada and, as of 1910, he was a partner with Arthur J. Lawrence in the L & M Photo Company. Most of their work was done in the Birtle area, with some photographs taken at Russell, Binscarth, and Rivers. The partnership was dissolved in 1917. Meeres moved to British Columbia around 1938. He died unmarried at Vernon, British Columbia on 1 February 1972 and was buried there.
