Alfred was an apprentice in pottery. His parents were potters also. After his marriage and the death of his first child, he heard of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and was baptized immediately. He helped spread the gospel through his work while in England. In 1840, Heber C. Kimball urged him to quit his work and become a full-time missionary, which he did.

In 1842 he brought his family to America and settled for a time in Nauvoo. He was called on another mission in 1844 to Vermont. After the martyrdom, the family moved to Burlington, Iowa, where a branch of the church was organized. They had planned to go west with the saints, but Orson Hyde called Alfred on a second mission to England. He did missionary work with many of the twelve apostles when they were there. He returned home and brought his family west.

Alfred dedicated the southwest cornerstone of the Salt Lake Temple in 1853, attended the Brigham City School of the Prophets, and was bishop for 20 years. He kept journals most of his life.
