The son of James Albery and Mary Moore, Albery first stood for Parliament at the 1923 general election, when he unsuccessfully contested the Labour Party safe seat of Bow and Bromley in the East End of London.
Albery held the Gravesend seat for 21 years, until his own defeat at the 1945 general election by the Labour candidate Garry Allighan. Allighan was expelled from the House of Commons two years later, but Albery (by then 68 years old) did not contest the resulting by-election in November 1947, when Labour's Richard Acland held the seat with a reduced majority.
