Albert was born in 1897 and died aged 44 in 1941. He was an Oxford County policeman and the first person to be injected with penicillin at the Radcliffe Infirmary. He had serious blood poisoning and was not expected to survive which gave the doctors a chance to trial this drug. He was married with two children. He was buried in the cemetery in March 1941.
