He came from a large family. He had 2 brothers, Archie Walter & William & 5 sisters, Marjorie, Ida Winifred, Isabel, Annie Maude & Gertrude.

In 1911 he is living with 3 of his siblings, his father Alfred, a publican & his mother Mary Elizabeth at Rads End, Eversholt, Woburn. George is 16 years old & working as a general labourer.

No records of his war service survive, but we do know he joined the 5th (Reserve) Battalion Bedfordshire Regiment. He did not serve overseas as they were training & providing home defence. The battalion did not leave the UK until early 1915 & sadly George died of pneumonia on 9th December 1914.
