    Alfred Cleaveland Bullymore was born ca. July–September 1886 in Thrapston in Northamptonshire, with census records showing him as a servant in the Blunsom household in nearby Kettering in 1901, and then as a boarder and hosiery assistant in London a decade later. He eventually found himself serving in World War I, at which point he was a listed as an acting sergeant in 1914 with the Royal Army Medical Corps (service number 36561). Following the war, Bullymore appears to have relocated to Birmingham, where he married Mary A. Thursfield in 1921 (in Aston) and passed away in 1957 (in Sutton Coldfield).
