Connection with Collingham, Linton or Micklethwaite and reason for inclusion on this web site
  • Named as an Absent Voter due to Naval or Military Service on the 1918 or 1919 Absent Voter list for Collingham, Linton or Micklethwaite

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.

After the war

From 1928 to 1937 George and Clarice Lilian Walker appear on the electoral roll for Thorparch. By 1939, George and Clarice had a son, John and they were all living at 1 Coniston Road in Harrogate. George was a railway shunter and guard. 1 Coniston Road remained there home for many years, and they are on the electoral roll for that address from 1940 until at least 1960. During this time their family grew to include their children, John Gerald Walker, Joseph Harold Walker and Daisy Alice Walker, with Daisy marrying Peter Clark in 1953. George's wife Clarice died in 1977, but we have not yet found when George died.
