Alfred was the son of Robert Gradwell Norbury of Coopers Fold, Cheadle Hulme. He had been born at Chester and that is where he enlisted.

The Stockport Advertiser, 12 May 1916, reported that Alfred had only served for six weeks and had died from fever. His funeral had taken place the previous Friday but "owing to the Stockport district being a prohibited one on account of infectious disease, the remains had to be laid to rest without the usual military honours being accorded."
