Rifleman George Ernest Cantell
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Jan., 1884
Death: Oct. 28, 1914

My cousin has the physical items (medals, letters, gift box, portrait, etc.) and I am currently collecting genealogical data.

George's Wife's maiden name was "Stephens".

George had two children, Joan Kathleen Cantell (the future Mrs. Sawyer) born June 3, 1913, and a son, Alan George Cantell, born January 4, 1915. So sad, born after his father's death.

Joan died in July 1996. Alan died in June 1986.

I did not find a marriage record for Joan.

Alan married twice; 1st to Ida M. Distin in 1936 and 2nd to Janet M. Nelson in 1958.

Source: George's military service record and other birth, marriage, and death records from www.ancestry.com.

He was in Barracks, 1st Battalion, King's Royal Rifle Corps, Rank Lance Corporal, age 26.

On one form "Medical History" it lists his "Declared Age" as 18 9/12 years on 7 Oct. 1902.

served from 1900 till death in 1914.

possession of a medal that indicates he served during the Boer War.
