Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

George Burgoyne Owen was the son of the late George Owen and Janet M. Owen (nee Culver). The Sands Directory of 1915 records E.W. Culver as living in Rockesley, Stuart Street, Wahroonga.
He was buried in the Busigny Communal Cemetery Extensio, Nord, France, grave V111.A18. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission notes that the great majority of the men whose names are contained in these Registers died in one of the three hospitals.
After the Armistice it was enlarged by the concentration into Plots 11 to V11 of the graves from a wide area between Cambrai and Guise.
His name is recorded on the Honour Roll of St. Andrews Anglican Church Wahroonga.
