I have loads of fond memories of staying with Alf & Audrey when I was a teenager and beyond. He was always great fun and very kind to me, he was a very special person. And he's left a legacy of three quite special boys behind him. If there were more people like Alf in the world it would be a better place.

Always remember Alf as a child coming to see you all, always had to have a ruff and tumble, remember the stubble on his chin being used as a means of torture in the best possible way, very fond memories.
Alway remember the fireman's hat in the corner and him making a chess set for me.
His woodwork and paintings, and coat of arms for the Tompkins family.
He will be sadly missed by all, a proper gentleman of his time xxx

Alf visited my late Mum on numerous occasions and I learnt a lot about him and his family from her. I began visiting him and his lovely wife Audrey at Chandlers Ford regularly as Alf had done with my Mum. I loved his stories even if some were regularly retold! When Audrey died and Alf moved closer to his family and his roots in Kent I continued to visit and we had great fun together. He constantly asked me to explain how we were related (I am his cousin) but I didn’t mind as he was great fun to be with. Our visits to local pubs always led to a battle as to who should pay (I sometimes won but not often) and we often had a hearty breakfast in Chiselhurst the following day. I had promised to take him to Whitstable and managed it in 2017. It was the Oyster festival and he loved it. We met up with one of my family friends called Richard and we had a wonderful day. So many lovely memories; eating all his chocolate Swiss rolls, trying to get him to paint more than watching TV, chatting over the relationship he had with his grandsons. It was perfect...oh and never succeeding in getting him to embrace the internet! The picture is off Alf and my friend Richard at that Oyster festival. It was a privilege and pleasure to have known Alf and I am still struggling to get to grips with the fact he is no longer here. Love from all of us from the Alton contingent.

Andy’s parents used to put up with the crowd invading their home through our teenage years. ‘Mr T’ was always happy to chat and engage in the banter. He would always have to ensure their small poodle was corralled when I entered as it had taken an extreme dislike to me and would attempt to attack. I have a clear picture of him holding back a struggling ball of black fur.
Our condolences to Andy and the family

  • He was a grand fella, your dad. I recall one afternoon when we were all gathered round your place,when a recruitment ad came on the tv for the Royal Navy which featured a mine sweeper. Mr T says as the ad shows a depth charge doing its thing, That’s what I did during my military service” So I said “What, explode?” As I recall he whacked me round the head.
