George Arthur Burgess died of pneumonia, possibly as a result of complications from catching influenza in the world-wide epidemic of 1918. He was the son of Mrs M Burgess, 58 Osborne Road, Cale Green.

The National Archives holds on-line records of every soldier who served abroad during the War and who are, therefore, entitled to service medals. No trace has been found of George amongst the records suggesting he never served overseas.

Number: 30103
