Born in Worthenbury, Flintshire, Wales in 1888, the eldest son of the late John and Elizabeth Woodfield of Worthenbury, Flintshire, Wales.
The 1911 Census shows George living with his brother John at Barton Mere, Malpas, Cheshire and employed as a mill waggoner.
George died of pneumonia at Pembroke Dock. He was awarded service medals, so had seen service on the Western Front. We can only presume he was on his way back to the United Kingdom after the Armistice and fell ill.
