George and Louisa married in 1905, and appear to have had at least one child, Minnie Eliza (1908), and possibly a second, Dorothy Ann (1913).

George appears to have re-married in 1942 to Margaret Furness, and Margaret died in 1963. They may have had 2 children, one of which died young.

Minnie Eliza appears to have married William Critchlow in 1942, and Minnie died in 1977.
