George Ernest Pawson



George Ernest Pawson



Born in Melmerby in 1890, George Ernest was the younger son of Edward and Annie Pawson, Edward being a Brewer's Drayman. George's connection with Hampsthwaite has not yet been established but in 1914 he married Minnie Thackwray and they are said to have had two children born in Hampsthwaite where George worked as a gardener. By 1916 they were living at 28 Park Row, New Park, Harrogate.

He enlisted at Harrogate with a service number of 28053 and, joined as a Private, the 12th Battalion of the West Yorkshire (Prince of Wales) Regiment.

He was killed in action in France on the 17th August 1916 and is recorded there on Pier and Face 2A 2C 2D of the Thiepval Memorial. His name is also recorded on the Killinghall Memorial

Although no medal record card has been found for George, it appears he was entitled to receive the British War and Victory Medals
