  1. Hi there. My name is Lindsay Hyde (Australia) George Proctor was my great uncle, Sarah Ann Hyde being my great Grandmother and his younger brother Richard who you mention, being my grandfather. Its good to get some information on George abt his younger years as George has been quite difficult to obtain information on when researching from Australia. Great site..appreciate your dedication. I have fortunately been able to track Georges WW1 service medals which I now proudly display with his brother Richards in my home in Australia. I am happy to send you a pic of the medals if this helps your site. Regards

    1. Hi Lindsay, I am sorry it has taken me so long to reply. I would be delighted if you could send a photo of Georges Medals & I would then add them with his information. You can email me directly at I hope to be adding some more information to the site as there is to be a dedication to the new Memorial at St Peters Church soon. Thank-you for lovely remarks, kind regards Val
