George was the elder son of Herbert and the late Elizabeth Kinder, 3 Barley Street, Stockport. The 1901 Census records Herbert as working as a blacksmith's striker. Elizabeth is believed to have died between January and March 1901. George had a brother, William, who was a year younger.

His service number shows that George had enlisted at Stockport, during September 1914. When he died, he was in hospital after being wounded. It is not possible to speculate how long he might have spent there. It could have only been a day or so, or it could have been several weeks if he was unfit to travel back to the UK.

Willie is also known to have been serving in France and is believed to have survived the War.
