Alfred Cornelius Lynch (26 January 1931 – 16 December 2003) was an English actor on stage, film and television.

Lynch was born in Whitechapel, London, the son of a plumber. After attending a Roman Catholic school, he worked in a drawing office as a draughtsman before entering national service. Around 1953, whilst working in a factory, he attended theatre acting evening classes, at which he met his life partner, James Culliford.

In 1958 he joined the Royal Court Theatre and acted in a number of plays. After 1960 his career moved more into film and television, for example appearing with Sean Connery in the 1961 film On the Fiddle and the 1965 film The Hill. He also appeared in the 1968 adaptation of The Sea Gull, and the 1990 film The Krays. Some of his later television credits include reading children's stories on Jackanory, Manhunt, Going Straight, Pie in the Sky, and the Doctor Who serial The Curse of Fenric as Commander Millington.

James Culliford (8 September 1927 – March 2002) was a British actor on stage, film and television. Some of his noted roles are The Entertainer (1960), Quatermass and the Pit (1967) and The Trygon Factor (1969). He also appeared in the Doctor Who serial Frontier in Space in 1973.

Jimmy Culliford suffered a stroke in 1972, after which he and Alfie moved from London to Brighton, where, until Jimmy's death in 2002, Alfie largely put aside his career to look after him. It was the central relationship of Alfie's life. He attracted many passionate admirers but, despite little detours and adventures, which included a fling with Nureyev, it was to Jimmy that he always returned.

Jimmy died in 2002. Lynch died the following year.

Days of Love chronicles more than 700 LGBT couples throughout history, spanning 2000 years from Alexander the Great to the most recent winner of a Lambda Literary Award. Many of the contemporary couples share their stories on how they met and fell in love, as well as photos from when they married or of their families. Included are professional portraits by Robert Giard and Stathis Orphanos, paintings by John Singer Sargent and Giovanni Boldini, and photographs by Frances Benjamin Johnson, Arnold Genthe, and Carl Van Vechten among others. “It's wonderful. Laying it out chronologically is inspired, offering a solid GLBT history. I kept learning things. I love the decision to include couples broken by death. It makes clear how important love is, as well as showing what people have been through. The layout and photos look terrific.” Christopher Bram “I couldn’t resist clicking through every page. I never realized the scope of the book would cover centuries! I know that it will be hugely validating to young, newly-emerging LGBT kids and be reassured that they really can have a secure, respected place in the world as their futures unfold.” Howard Cruse “This international history-and-photo book, featuring 100s of detailed bios of some of the most forward-moving gay persons in history, is sure to be one of those bestsellers that gay folk will enjoy for years to come as reference and research that is filled with facts and fun.” Jack Fritscher
