About George Alfred

George Alfred Glover was born in London in 1886, the son of Joseph and Amy Glover. He married Winifred Dale Hogg in Liverpool in 1914 and they lived at 25 Beech Grove, Seaforth, Lancashire with Winifred’s parents.

He engaged as a first class waiter in the Stewards’ Department on the Lusitania at Liverpool on 12 April 1915 at a monthly rate of £4-5s-0d (£4.25). He joined the ship on the morning of 17 April before she left Liverpool landing stage for the very last time.

He was killed when the Lusitania was sunk. He was aged 29 years.

His body was never recovered and identified after the disaster, so his name is embossed on the Mercantile Marine Memorial at Tower Hill, London.  

On 16 June 1915 administration of his estate was granted to his widow Winifred and his effects amounted to £51-0s-0d. In addition the Liverpool and London War Risks Insurance Association Limited granted an annual pension to his widow to compensate her for the loss of her husband, which amounted to £45-16s-2d (£45.81) payable at the rate of £3-16s-5d (£3.82) per month.
