John George Radford 1887–1953



John George Radford was commonly known as George.
He is the only candidate discovered with obvious links to Crich Parish, though he wasn't listed as absent on the 1918 Register of Electors (again, that doesn't necessarily mean that he didn't serve). This John George Radford was a farmer, born at Crich in 1887. He spent much of his life at Hollins Farm, Plaistow Green, and was a bachelor. He passed away at Bullbridge in 1953.

Obviously a note of caution is needed as no record has been found that this man served.
