    Notes 
    • on the 1901 census for the William Brierley family, a visitor is noted: "Alice Brierley", widow age 65, apparently born in Walkden. This is probably his mother.

      The civil registration for his birth, and the church record for his marriage does not record a father's name. William may have been illegitimate.
