Did he survive WW1? Was he wounded? Did he receive an army pension on account of any wounds? I'm only asking these questions because if he was wounded his records may appear on Ancestry.

My Great Grandfather did survive WW1 because the evidence I have prove he had eight children after the war but do not know weather he was wounded.

Try searching the Medal Card Index on this website:

Unfortunately there are a lot of George Grays but you may recognise one of them.
