Thomas King Bedding was born in Bermondsey on 20 September 1883, the son of Alfred Bedding, a vaccination officer, and his wife Martha. In July 1903, when he was 19 years old, he went to work for London & County Bank. In 1909 London & County Bank merged with London & Westminster Bank, and Bedding became an employee of the enlarged London County & Westminster Bank. He was also a member of the bank's staff sports club.
In January 1917 Bedding left his post as a clerk at the bank's London Lombard Street branch to go on military service as a Private in the Royal Garrison Artillery. Bedding was based at Shoeburyness, Essex, and on 21 January 1918 he was struck and killed by a train while carrying out his duties. He was 34 years old and left a widow, Clara, whom he had married in 1911.
