564032 Sergeant (Observer) George Walton Marwood,
114 Squadron, Royal Air Force
George Walton Marwood was the only son among the five children born to the marriage between Hugh F. Marwood and Emmaline (nee Walton). George’s sisters were; Hilda Mary (b. 1905), Doris Emmaline (b. 1906), Kathleen (b. 1908), and Cora (b. 1910). Hugh Marwood was born in Cockerton in County Durham in 1870. He worked as a Corve Repairer above ground at a colliery. A corve was a basket woven from osier, a type of willow, which was used to move coal underground from the hewer to the bank at the pit-head.
Emmaline was born in Bolton on Dearne near Doncaster in 1873 and all the Marwood children were born there so it appears that the family were very settled there. Hugh Marwood died in Doncaster in 1924 and it appears that his family moved to Barwick at some time after this as his daughter, Doris, married Barwicker, George Cooper in December 1929 and she was described as being of the parish of Bolton on Dearne at the time.
