Albert Stanley was born in Shropshire, England.

Albert was born in 1862. He passed away in 1915.

In 1894 Albert was a founding member of the Midlands Liberal Federation. He was elected to Staffordshire County Council from its conception and sat until his death. He was twice approached by the Liberal Party to stand for parliament but declined. However, on a third occasion in 1907 he accepted and was elected at the 1907 North West Staffordshire by-election. He sat as Member of Parliament (MP) for North West Staffordshire and was often described as a Liberal–Labour politician.

When in 1909 the Miners Federation of Great Britain voted to affiliate to the Labour Party, he agreed to seek re-election as a Labour Party candidate. He was returned to the House of Commons again at the December 1910 general election, and died in office in 1915, aged 52.

Albert is buried in St Peter Churchyard, Hednesford, Cannock Chase District, Staffordshire, England.
