Andrew, a boiler maker is an expert in forming thick steel plate to make boilers and other industrial equipment. The plates are welded or rivetted together. In 1912 welding was coming into use, but Titanic was practically all rivetted, including her boilers.

In later years George's daughter was awarded the B.E.M Medal hence (British Empire Medal). In 1946 the London Committee was going to promote her as an example of righteousness to encourage other former child dependents to follow along the same lines of being do-gooders, but fell apart as no one was interested. Most dependent families were barely living on a reasonable wage as the full grip of austerity was affecting every house hold throughout Britain. Geoge's daughter died in 1987 and her death is registered at Liverpool where she and her mother and brother remainded there all thorugh their lifes.
