Henry Saunders was born in 1852 at Luton in Bedfordshire, son of a bonnet maker called Sarah Saunders, formerly Foster, and her husband John Saunders, a bonnet blocker. Henry appears in the 1861 census living with his parents and siblings on Hitchin Road in Luton. Ten years later Henry was living with his mother and sister at Dancer's Cottages on Hitchin Road, and Henry was working as a blocker.

On 29th May 1876 Henry married Ann Elizabeth Lewis in Luton. They did not have any children. Both the 1881 and 1891 censuses find them living on Hitchin Road. Henry worked as a straw hat blocker, whilst Ann was a straw plait machinist. In 1891 they had Ann's niece living with them.

By 1901 Henry and Ann had moved to Windmill Street. Henry's older brother was living with them too, as well as a boarder.

Some time between 1901 and 1909 they moved to 17 York Street. Henry died there on 30th July 1909, aged 56. Ann survived him by nearly 28 years.
