Ernest Kempson was born in 1877 at Luton in Bedfordshire, son of a straw hat sewer named Sarah Ann Kempson, formerly Smith, and her husband James Kempson, a plait bleacher and bricklayer.

Ernest appears living with his parents in each census from 1881 to 1901, living in the southern suburbs of Luton. In the 1911 census he was boarding with a Lizzie Hockley, whose husband was not at home on census night.

Ernest does not appear to have married. He died in Luton in 1939, aged 61.
