Hi Halfmast....if you have access to findmypast and can look at the newspapers,  there may be an article about them being WW1 casualty with a photo if you are lucky.

Have you tried tracing any relatives from the siblings of George?  The 1911 shows that Arthur and Louisa had 12 children, 10 still living.

There is always a possibility that a relative has a photo.

Have you checked the surname interests section to see if anyone else  is researching the Sheltons from Notts?
