George was the son of Frederick and Ann Alden, born in Jude Binstead in 1889. His family lived in Binstead in 1891 and 1901, and in Manor Cottage, Tongham Road, Ash, in 1911. By then George was a private in the 1st Battalion Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry.

George Alden was included in the memorial leaflet for the memorial service at St Peterís Church in 1915. Georgeís medals card records that he was awarded the 1914 Star and clasp, that he went to War on 14 August 1914. The register of Soldiers' effects records that he died of wounds in 13th General Hospital Boulogne.

The electoral register for 1918 records that Frederick and Ann Alden lived at 6 Alexandra Road, and a list prepared by the Ash War Memorial committee confirms that they were his relations.
