  3. Adolphus George Valpy (1880-1941) was killed at Croydon during the Blitz, on 12 January 1941. He was born in Lambeth, the son of another Adolphus George, who moved to London shortly before his marriage to Fanny Martha Dommett in Lambeth in 1879. Adolphus George snr, was also apparently a victim of the Blitz. He was killed at Battersea on 21 March 1921.
