Biography

George Snoxall was listed in the Absent Voter Records for Abbots Langley in Autumn 1918. He was initially identified from the Absent Voter Records and was not recorded elsewhere in the Abbots Langley Parish records. In the Absent Voter Records George was listed serving with the Royal Garrison Artillery (RGA) and his address was given at 11 Nash Mills, Abbots Langley.

George was born in the autumn of 1894 at Aylesbury. At the time of the 1901 Census he was recorded living with his sister, Lizzie, at the home of their grand-parents Meshach and Amelia Young at their house at Primrose Vale, Abbots Langley. Sixty-two year old Meshach worked as an Agricultural Labourer.

It is not known what had happened to George and Lizzie’s parents, or why the children were living with their grand-parents. It is also not known when George enlisted with the RGA.

The Absent Voter Records indicated that George’s address was at 11 Nash Mills, Abbots Langley. This was the address of John and Louisa Snoxall. Their two sons, Frederick and William both had served in the Great War and had survived. It has not been possible to establish a family connection between George and this family, however before the Great War George had lived with his grand-parents at an adjacent address at Primrose Vale.

George Snoxall survived the War.
