Tottenham Quakers

Alfred Taylor

Alfred Taylor spent three and a half years in prison in England. Alfred's first contact with Quakers was through those who were court-martialled with him in France. He was released from Maidstone prison in 1920.

After leaving prison Alfred returned to the printing trade and became a regular attender at Tottenham Meeting, along with Ivy Naish who later became his wife. They were married in August 1922 at Tottenham Meeting House and subsequently joined the Society of Friends. Alfred served the Quaker meeting in many capacities. He and Ivy remained in Tottenham until their deaths. Alfred died in 1964 and Ivy in 1977.
