Alfred Johnson
In the 1911 census, Alfred was living with his widowed sister, Alice Hoyle, and her two children at 37 Church Hill Baildon. The next we hear of him is: The Rev John Shenton preached at the Wesleyan Chapel, Baildon, on Sunday afternoon when a memorial service was held for Pte Alfred Johnson of the Bradford Pals Battalion, who was killed in action in France on 1st July. An appropriate sermon from the text ‘Why this loss of Ointment?’ was given. A large company assembled as a token of respect to the fallen soldier who was an enthusiastic worker in all spheres of activity in connection with the Wesleyan cause.
