Born 1888 in Coventry, Warwickshire to a family originally from Orton on the Hill, Leicestershire.  Alfred was the fourth of five sons to William Flemming, brass polisher of Draper’s Field, Coventry and his wife Clara Selina nee Taylor. In the 1901 census Alfred is recorded as a florist’s errand boy aged 13. He married Ada Norbury in 1913 and they had one child Stanley Flemming.  (His younger brother Arthur Flemming, enlisted into the Coldstream Guards, 5861, aged 14, saying he was 18, occupation striker. He joined the Expeditionary Force in 1914 served in Egypt and was discharged with pneumonia in 1916. Arthur’s marriage at Mortlake, Surrey to Jane Josephine Sullivan in 1912 was witnessed by their sister Elsie but in this document his father was named as George Flemming, carman. A clerical error as Arthur correctly names his wife, both his parents and all his brothers including Alfred in his subsequent application for a war pension.)

Harold Winning Fleming, born 1898 in Hampstead, London and his brother Captain Alan McKinstry Fleming, M.C. were the only sons of Dr Alexander John Fleming (1857-1913)  from Corboy, county Longford, Ireland and Lily Huthert (Brown. He in turn, was the eldest son of Rev. Robert Winning Fleming, Presbyterian Minister of Coleraine and descended from several generations of Presbyterian ministers in Ireland. Both brothers enlisted in the Bedfordshire Regiment. De Ruvigny in his Roll of Honour 1914-1918 v.2 wrote of Harold Winning Fleming:  “educated St John’s House, Hampstead, N.W.; was a King’s Scholar at Westminster, and the Royal College, Sandhurst; enlisted in August 1916; was gazetted 2nd Lieut 1 May 1917; served with the Expeditionary Force in France and Flanders, and was killed in action by a sniper at Gheluvelt, on the Ypres-Menin Road, 5 Oct 1917. Buried in the Bedford Cemetery, Ypres-Menin Road. His chaplain wrote: “I frequently saw him both in and out of the trenches and we all liked him for his bright and happy dispositition, as well as for his keenness and great efficiency. It was no secret that he was considered one of the most promising of the junior officers in the battalion.” A brother officer wrote: “I am certain that at his death  the 1st Bedfords lost one of the bravest of its officers”, and another: “The other officers of his company having become casualties early in the attack (Oppy Wood, near Arras), this officer, 2nd Lieut. H.W. Fleming, who was in the trenches for the first time, assumed command throughout the attack, and in the subsequent tour of duty he showed coolness, gallantry and ability, and his example afforded great encouragement to his men.”  He was mentioned in Despatches by General (now F.M.) Sir Douglas Haig, for gallant and distinguished service as mentioned above.”
