Private George Nalder
Service number  26057
Essex Regiment - Depot

Died on the 2nd December 1919  aged  29 years.

Buried in the churchyard of St. Bartholomew's Church, Horley, Surrey - grave reference , South West of Church

Son of George and Mary Nalder. Born at Newbury, Berks.

The family inscription on the bottom of Private Nalder's headstone reads : "GIVE PEACE IN OUR TIME , O LORD" and the CWGC 'Headstone Schedule" shows that this was commissioned by "Mrs. J. Nalder, Station Road, Horley, Surrey"  -- this is Julia Nalder who ran the local Horley fish and chip shop in Station Road.  I'm not sure what relation she is to Private Nalder.

She gave brief evidence into the death of Mr Frederick Holman of Horley who committed suicide.  His death is not connected to Private Nalder, it is just the only newspaper archive reference that I can find to the Nalder family of Horley.  Private Nalder is not commemorated on the Horley War Memorial.

Attached is a photograph of Private Nalder's headstone which I took last week.

Thank you for the above additional details - very interesting.  Next time I'm back in Horley I'll try to find Julia and/or Henry's grave.

I didn't know Private Nalder's first name - but now that you have provided it I have amended the topic title accordingly.

Grateful, as always.
