Of Alfred Joesbury we know only that, as a 33 year-old bachelor from Barr Street, Hotley, Birmingham, he married Alice Ethel Tombs of Wheatley in St Mary's Church on Christmas Day 1916. He was stated to be a butcher. Such Alfred Joesburys as can be found in the Medal Rolls Index seem not to have served in the Royal Warwickshire Regiment. A William Joesbury was serving as a Private in the Royal Warwickshires in 1914. However, no Census of those times enumerated, anywhere, an Alfred or a William Joesbury who appears with certainty to be the right man.
