Not much is known of his childhood other than we could expect it to be much the same as other children at the time in Australia

The first record we have of Albert is his marriage to Mabel Baddiley on 27 April 1912 aged 22 at St. Thomas’ Toowong, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. (Marriage Certificate number 003157).

Frome the 1913 Electoral Roll we see that he was living with his parents at the time in Fortitude and working as a Tram Conductor.

This same year on 6 March 1913, their first child is born, Isobel May Standley (1913 – 1987).

On 14 February 1918, a son Albert William (1918 – 1983) is born.

By 1919, then aged 30, Alfred and Mabel are living in Kelvin Grove Road, Newmarket, Queensland, working as a tram worker.
