I believe my grandfather, as well as his son, ran this pub up until 1939. I have found it listed in the phone directory under William Kirby (along with the King and Queen in Newington, and the Lamb and Flag in Homerton). Although grandad (William Kirby) kept control of the Alderman, I believe his son, William James Kirby ran it along with his brother George Kirby. William James went down to Dorking area and started working on other pubs: The Star in Dorking, the Parrot at Forest Green near Dorking and the Cricketers at Downside near Leatherhead. I know all of this because I have recently communicated with William James's son, Bryan who worked with "Bill" until Bill's untimely death at age 57.
The Alderman only bears an identifying plaque, and must be a residence now. My cousins Bryan and Pamela were both born above the pub and the place of residence on William James' marriage certificate in 1933, was The Alderman on Stannary street. When George married in 1939, The Alderman was given as his address as well. However, I do know that George was at that time running The Railway Hotel in Egham. During the war, his wife Phyllis Kirby (phone directory in 1943) ran it until his return. Shortly after George's return, he left it - about 1946. Apparently it was once a lovely pub but has fallen into bad times. ***
