Born in Huzhou, East China's Zhejaing province, Qian Zhuangfei joined the Communist Party of China (CPC) in 1926.

By the end of 1929, Qian, acting as an agent, infiltrated the party investigation division of the Central Organization Department of the Kuomintang.

On the night of April 25, 1931, after learning that Gu Shunzhang defected after his arrest, he promptly reported the situation to the CPC Central Committee and safeguarded the committee's security.

In October 1934, he took part in the Red Army's Long March. After the Zunyi Conference in 1935, he was appointed deputy secretary-general of the General Political Department of the Red Army.

In April of the same year, he was killed in Houshan township, Jinsha county, Guizhou province at the age of 39.

A memorial hall commemorating Qian was erected in Huzhou.
