Born in New Zealand on 3 September 1865, he married Florence E. Pearson (?-?) in Winnipeg on 11 January 1896, with whom he had a daughter and a son, Henry Lloyd Pulford. He served as a Winnipeg city alderman for 21 years and Acting Mayor for two extensive periods during that time. He was associated with J. W. Cockburn in the development of Winnipeg Hydro and was Chairman of the city’s first power commission, police commission, public works committee, legislation, library, social welfare, unemployment and hospital committees, and a member of the water district board for seven years. He died at the Winnipeg General Hospital on 26 September 1937 and was buried in the Elmwood Cemetery. He is commemorated by Pulford Street.
