"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them".
George James Devonshire was born in 1891 in Slough Buckinghamshire (now Berkshire) to William Herbert Devonshire, a butcher, and his wife Sarah Ann May.
In 1901 George and his family were living in Middle Green, Langley Marsh, Buckinghamshire. However in 1911 George can be found working as a cowman on a farm and lodging with Emma Plum a 66 year old widow and her son Fred, in Hurley Village, Berkshire.
In 1915 in Maidenhead George married Edith Eaton and they lived together in 58 Powney Road, Maidenhead.
George first enlisted with the Royal Berkshire Regiment, later being transferred to the Labour Corps.
Sadly George was to pass away the day after World War I came to an end. He left behind his wife Edith and their son also named George James.
