George Harry Gartshore on Gambles premises, Meeting Street, early 1940s

George Harry Gartshore was a grandson of the famous George Gartshore who was a farrier to the Quorn Hunt. George Harry Gartshore was born in Quorn on 4th March 1890 and married Olive Cutts in Quorn Church on 9th September 1916.

This photograph was taken in the early 1940s in the yard of Gambles on Meeting Street – now the premises of Gambles Funeral Directors. His son George says that these premises at that time were used as a farmyard with pig sties etc. and that not only did George Harry work for Gambles at times, but the Gartshores actually lived for while in the ‘White House’ (now 101 Meeting Street on the corner of Meeting Street and Spinney Drive). The second photograph shows the same premises today – now offices and a Chapel of Rest.

George and Olive Gartshore had nine children. George died in 1973 aged 83 years. His son (George) still lives on Mansfield Street in Quorn, (2019).
