Alfred Russell Fordham (11 March 1873- 25 November 1945) was a barrister who was briefly a member of the London School Board.[1]

Born in Kensington,[2] in 1885 he inherited his father's estates at Melbourn Priory, Cambridgeshire and divided his time between there and his town house in Phillimore Gardens.[3]

On 12 October 1899 he was elected to fill a casual vacancy on the London School Board, representing the Chelsea Division which included Kensington.[4] He stood down at the next school board elections in November 1900.
