From the 1800s until recently, the Station Master was the key authority figure in the railway station, responsible for its smooth running and all of its staff.
Our station had a Station Master from when it first opened and in 1900, that was Arthur H Sayer.
By the following year, according to the 1901 Census, Alfred Harvey had taken over as Station Master. Alfred was born in Cambridge and started his career as a Railway Clerk at Hindolveston, Norfolk.
By the 1911 Census Alfred had moved to Corpusty in Norwich and was still a Station Master.
