Story: George Wilfred Clemas was born in Hindon, Wiltshire on 25 Nov 1889 the son of Edward Richard Clemas and Elizabeth Ellen Clemas (nee Brickell). He lived his early life in Hindon until by 1901 he was living at 59 St. James Street, Shaftesbury, Dorset, with his Uncle presumably because his had mother died in 1893. By 1911 he had moved to Merton Abbey, Surrey, where he had become an Elementary School Teacher. His Military Service cannot be verified except his name appears on the Roll Of Honour published in the St. James' Church, Shaftesbury, in Nov 1918 and the fact that his service is acknowledged in the National Union of Teachers Roll of Honour. By the time of the 1939 Register he was living at 9 Delamere Road, Wimbledon, Surrey, described as an Assistant Master in a Secondary School. He was still single at this time. His death was recorded in the British American Hospital, Madrid, Spain, on 19 Aug 1965 and his address on the Probate records indicate he was officially living at 9 Rangers Hotel, Bexhill-on-Sea, Sussex.
