Alfred Evans (1870), son of John Evans (1827) and Eliza Smart (1839), was baptised 11 Sep 1870 in Ross-On-Wye, Herefordshire. In 1895, Alfred joined the Herefordshire Volunteer Regiment (H.R.V.C.) and was temporarily attached to the KSLI (King's Shropshire Light Infantry) for active service in South Africa 1900-1901 (Boer War). In 1908 he became a member of the 1st Herefordshire Regiment (T.F. or Territorial Force). The 1/1st Herefordshire saw service during the Great War at Gallipoli, the Suez Canal, Gaza, Beersheba and the Western Front. Alfred was discharged in 1917 (time served), just before the Regiment was sent from the Mediterranean to the Western Front. He had reached the appointment of Company Sergeant Major.
Alfred married Elizabeth Rose Llewellyn on 12 Mar 1906 in Ross-On-Wye, Herefordshire. They had at least two daughters, Enid Mary and Vera Louise, born 1906 and 1911 respectively in Ross-On-Wye.
