- General surgeon
Held the office of House Surgeon to the Birmingham General Hospital for ten years; he was then elected Surgeon in 1823 and held office until March, 1843, when his place was filled by S H Amphlett (qv), who had been his pupil. He appears to have belonged to a medical family in the town, for Fred Jukes, living at 45 Cherry Street, took his MRCS in 1819 and was also for ten years Resident Surgeon to the Birmingham General Hospital. Alfred Jukes died on or before July 28th, 1847.
