Alfred was born in Soham and was the son of William Sutton Isaacson (1857-1909) and his wife Harriet (née Gilby). William was a publican and general carter, and in 1901 Alfred was living with his parents and siblings at the Queens Arms in Soham.  William however died at the Fulbourn Asylum in 1909, so he was then raised at Tanner’s Lane, Soham by his widowed mother who worked as a charwoman (1911).
