Further information:

George was born in Henbury the son of a farm labourer and the second youngest of six children with three brothers and two sisters.

George enlisted in the 78th Brigade, Royal Horse Artillery and Royal Field Artillery in September 1914 when he was described as 5’ 4 ½ “ tall and weighing 8st 2lb with light brown hair, hazel eyes and a fresh complexion. George was posted to France in July 1915 and served there for four years until June 1919 - up to and including the Armistice. He returned to England and undertook a period of home service until his discharge in March 1920. In 1921 he married Catherine and at that time he was working with the Great Western Railway.

The date of George’s death is not known, but in view of the absence of any stated illness or injury in his war records, the cause of his ultimate demise is unlikely to have been war related.
