Alice Boland was born on 30th April 1859 in Cuckney, Nottinghamshire and was the daughter of Thomas Boland (1831) and Ann Giligan. Both parents were from County Kildare in Ireland. In 1861 she was living at 48 Newgate Street in Worksop. There is no mention of her or her parents in the 1871 census, and the family may well have moved back to Ireland. In 1881 she was single and was working as a servant in the family of John Brewertin, a Manchester pawnbroker at 26 Henry Street in Manchester. In 1891 she was still working as a domestic servant, this time in the household of mill furnisher Joseph Dee at 41 Portman Street in Moss Side in Manchester. She was living at 23 Hervey Road, Gorton when she married John Waite at Chorlton Register Office on 20th March 1897. In 1901 she was aged 38 and living at 18 Samuel Street in Gorton. In 1911 she was living at 13 Leicester Street (now Leicester Avenue) in Horwich. She died from bronchitis and influenza on 22nd February 1929 at 13 Leicester Avenue.
