George Henry Slaymaker
A George Henry Slaymaker is listed in the 1911 Census as born in Holton in 1900. His parents were possibly George Henry Slaymaker, groom, gardener, domestic born in Holton and Mary nee Ring, born in Wheatley. They lived at Rectory Cottage, Holton. There seems to be no record of a George Slaymaker serving with the Dorset Regiment; but there is of a G.T. Slaymaker as a Private with the Leicestershire Regiment in 1916, and of an A.W. Slaymaker, Squadron Quartermaster Sergeant with the Dorset Yeomanry in 1919. The Electoral Register for 1921 gives the parents and George Henry (junior) as then living on the High Street. He died on 25 January 1961 in the Cowley Road Hospital, having been living at 8 London Road. Probate was granted to a Brenda Titchener.
