About Alfred Aloysius

Alfred Aloysius Kelly was born in Seaforth, Liverpool, Lancashire in 1895, the son of John and Elizabeth Kelly.  The family home was at 7, Juvenal Street Dwellings, Liverpool, Lancashire.

He served as a scullion in the Stewards' Department on board the Lusitania and was killed when she was sunk.  His body was not amongst those recovered and identified afterwards.  He was aged 20 years.

As he has no known grave, his name is embossed on the Mercantile Marine Memorial at Tower Hill, London.

The records of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission show Alfred Kelly's rank to be that of a waiter, but Cunard records, published in March 1916 are more likely to be reliable
