George was born in Stockport , the son of William and Esther. The family home was at 37A Tamworth Street in the Newbridge Lane area of the town.

His service number suggests he enlisted during 1916 and, probably, had only been at the front for a few weeks. He was killed during an attack in the latter stages of the Battle of the Somme described here. George has no known grave.
