Biography

George William Woodings was the only surviving son of John Henry Woodings and Susan nee Hill of "Weeroona", Coromandel Valley. The family were originally from Coromandel Valley but went to live for a time in Victoria with other family members who had moved there. George's grandfather John Woodings was a lay preacher with the Coromandel Valley Wesleyan Methodist Church.

George's death left his parents with three remaining daughters, as some of their children had died in infancy. Cousins Sergeant Harrold Sullivan of the 9th Light Horse, and Private Herbert Sullivan of the 51st Battalion, also served.
