In 1891 he (George), married Kate Amelia Talmage, who worked with him until taking over the licence from him on his death in 1903. In 1908 she married William Holland, but he does not seem to have been involved in the business which continued in his wife's name.
He died in 1916, and Kate continued to run the Shakespeare until the 1920s. ***
