In the census of 5 April 1891 in Churchgate, Hackford by Reepham, Norfolk, he was listed as a Tailor, aged 15 born in Hackford Reepham, the son of William PASK.8

In the census of 31 March 1901 in 54 Corporation Road, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, he was listed as a Tailor aged 25 born in Reepham Norfolk, a Visitor of Walter C. THROWER, a Sewing Machine Maker.10

After their marriage they moved to Lowestoft, on doctor's orders, as Alfred had chest trouble. He was very prosperous in Lowestoft, before WWI, doing tailoring.

When the Zeppelin Raids started in September 1915, the family with their ten children fled, leaving everything behind.

They stayed for one night with relatives in North Walsham (possibly the ELLIS family), before moving into a house there on Norwich Road for about six months, while Alfred looked for a house in Norwich.6

After this time the family moved into a Poorhouse on Grapes Hill in Norwich, Alfred was "called up" into the Army, and went to work at Colchester Garrison as a Tailor. During the time at Grapes Hill, the family were helped by Dereham Road Mission, and the head of a poor school who was a Christian. However Annie would go without proper food to feed the children, and this contributed to her early death. The girls all became Christians, but the boys rebelled. The girls all spent some time at the Anguish School in Norwich, before going into service at various establishments.6
A photograph of ten of their children was taken about 1917.12
His wife, Annie, died on 5 November 1917 in 67 Grapes Hill, Norwich, Norfolk, at the age of 39. When Alfred got the news he did not want to return alone, so he wired his father and they both arrived together about 10 pm.
