Private George Taylor, 2nd Manchester Regt

The George Taylor mentioned in Chailey Parish Magazine in October 1914 as serving his King and Country may be the same 18 year old George Taylor who appears on the 1901 census living at South Street, Chailey and working as a blacksmith’s apprentice.

In October 1915 the parish magazine notes that he is serving with the 2nd Manchester Regiment in France and he appears to have remained with this battalion (according to the magazine) up to and including July 1919 when the final roll call of Chailey-connected serving men was published. 

He may or may not be related to Charles W Taylor who also served during the First World War.
