Alfred Edward Waterson 1880-1964

By Jean Moss (Derby Co-operative History Group) on 05/10/2017 at 12:47

A.E. Waterson was the first Co-operative MP in 1918. He was born in Derby and was a lay preacher, he married Gertrude Panter in 1905 at Kedleston Street Bourne Chapel and attended Ashbourne Road Elementary School Derby. Any information about his early life would be appreciated, we understand that he was orphaned at an early age. Thank you.
