Walker, George

On the 19th March 1918, George Walker married Clarence Lilian Appleyard in St. Oswald's Church Collingham. George was 26, a bachelor, and the son of George Walker a railway foreman. George Walker (Jnr) gave his occupation as a soldier. George was also listed in the 1919 electoral roll of Collingham as being an Absent Voter due to Naval or Military Service. However, we cannot yet track down George's service. There are too many men named George Walker who served in the war to be sure which was George Walker of Collingham.

By 1939, George and Clarice had a son, John and lived at 1 Coniston Road in Harrogate. George was a railway shunter and guard.
