Narrative

George William COCKING was born on the 28th February 1894 to William George COCKING, a printer, and Annie Hobbs FRANCIS. He was christened COCKING however, due to mother's second marriage, took name of TOPHAM.

George fought in World War One in the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Regiment. Whilst fighting in the miserable trenches George contracted tuberculosis (TB). On his return to England, this caused family problems as his future wife's parents forbade the marriage as a result. He left the Army in 1919.

He had been awarded four medals for his military service.

Following his Military Service George worked as an Asylum Attendant.

George married Rose Hanna CHALKLEY who was to die herself a year before him.

They married in a Registry Office in Biggleswade, Bedfordshire, UK. on 25th May 1918. She gave her age as 27 years and he as 24 years. At the time he was employed as a builder's labourer and she as a general domestic servant. George's Residence at the time of Marriage was Handley's Yard, Biggleswade. Rose Hannah's was shown as St. Andrew Street, Biggleswade.

One of the witnesses to the marriage was Annie Topham who may well be George's sister. The other witness was George Francis, probably a mutual friend of the couple.

George died tragically, a 'post-war' hero of the trenches, on 25th April 1923 at Mulberry Cottages, Old Knebworth, of TB leaving two baby daughters Ellen Rose born in 1919 and Margaret born in 1921.

NB. The Baptism Certificate, for daughter Ellen Rose Cocking, shows three sponsors. Two of these are on Rose Hanna's side of the family but the third, Lewis Alfred Ware, is likely to be of George's choice being either a relative or a good friend.

Straw Plaiting:
Straw plaiting was a 'cottage industry', like lace making, being something women could do at home to earn money. It was common in the Hertfordshire area due to factories such as the one at Redbourn making straw hats and bonnets. The straw was oat straw, cut into nine inch lengths. It was soaked in water to soften it and then flattened by pulling it through special rollers, whic were usually screwed to the cottage door post. The straws were the plaited into long strands and the women sold them to the local plait dealer. Local records in Hertfordshire showed they were paid a shilling for 200 yards.
