Alfred W.K. Fordham, b. Royston, Cambridge, 1840

Hope this is useful to someone.

Whilst researching people buried at Weaste Cemetery, Salford (Lancs) UK, I came across the grave of ALFRED W. KING FORDHAM, MRCVSL. He was born in July 1840 at Royston near Cambridge and died in Salford 25th March 1906. He was for 35 years a Veterinary for Salford Corporation as cattle and meat Inspector. (Salford had one of the biggest cattle markets in the country).

I suspect that he wasn't married as there is no other person on the grave stone and his funeral was attended by his sister and nephews.
