Obituary Cheshire Observer - 12th May, 1917

We regret to record the death of Private George Allman of the Army Service Corps, which took place on Friday 4th while in training, from pneumonia. Pte Allman who was widely known as previous to joining the army at Chester only a month ago, was for many years the valued servant of Mr.. and Mrs John Cullimore. He was a keen member since its formation of the Christleton & Wervin Troop of mounted volunteers, and had a genial personality. The news was received in the village with great regret. The interment is to take place at his home Parish Church of Chowley*, and the memorial service to be held at Christleton Church on Thursday evening.
