George Henry appears in the 1901 census, 17 years of age, living with his estate agent father, his mother and sister and a house servant at 7 Hall Royd, Shipley. At some point before 1911 he appears to have emigrated to Canada where he married Mabel Hilda Blake. Like so many emigres, George returned to fight for his country and only three days before the armistice the Shipley Times & Express reported: Pte George Henry Topham, Duke of Connaught’s Own Regt, younger son of Mr and Mrs Wilson Topham of 106 Ingleside Grove, Shipley, was killed in action on 13th October.
