George was the son of Richard Liptrot Hammond and Ann May Hammond (nee Scott). They had married at St Mary's Church, Cheadle, between July and September 1879. It's not known how many children they might have had but George was born about 1884, in Reddish. The family home is thought to have been 17 Asquith Street, Reddish.

1912 was an eventful year for George. His father died and he got married. His wife was Fanny Routledge and they married at St Agnes' Church, North Reddish. They would have two children together, one of whom they called George.

George worked at the Broadstone Mills in Reddish until he was conscripted into the army in November 1916. He is understood to have died from natural causes.

In the early 1920s, when the War Graves Commission collated its casualty information, Fanny was living at 302 Gorton Road, Reddish. It's not known if this was the home she shared with George.
