Person Details
Old Radford Nottingham
He was the husband of Florence Emmeline Brinklow (nee Wood) whom he married in 1897. He was the father of Florence, George William and Albert Brinklow. In 1901 George, his wife and son, George (1), were living at 63 Ronald Street, Radford. In 1911 when they were living at 38 Devonshire Street, Shirebrook, Mansfield, he completed the census that he and his wife had been married for 13 years and had had 5 children born alive of whom only two were still living. At the time they had two sons, George (11) and Albert (3, b. Old Radford). They returned to Radford, Nottingham, shortly afterwards and lived at 10 Stansfield Street. Their daughter, Florence, was probably born shortly after the 1911 census as there is a record of the birth of a Florence M. Brinklow, registered Apr/May/June 1911 in the Basford registration district. George William, may have been called up in 1918 as an army service record survives for a man of this name, born Old Radford 5 December 1899, whose father was listed as 'George Henry Brinklow of 10 Stansfield Street. The majority of the papers refer to George William's service in the Territorial Force (Royal Artillery) after the Great War, but it appears he may have served previously in the Sherwood Foresters.
He was a coal miner (hewer).
