george BOWDEN

I am looking for a birth for George BOWDEN in Manchester. He married a lady by the name of Lilian or Lucretia and had son Harold in 1906 in Manchester. He emmigrated to South Africa with his wife and son somewhere between 1906 and 1909.
His wife lived to over 106 years and received a letter from the Queen in congratulations.
He served in the war and received a Military Cross which he had to retrieve from Buckingham Palace.
While in South Africa, he had a further son and daughter. He died in South Africa.
