Extract from a longer obit. his fathers details being of interest to us.
George almost trumps Michael Caines little speach in Zulu with his military past.

MONS HERO'S DEATH. • Hepthorne Lane Soldier of Fighting Stock. The first man in the North Wingfield parish to be awarded a Military Medal was Lance-Sergeant Geo. Leverett, of the Sherwood Foresters, who was subsequently discharged from the Army medically unfit. His condition got gradually worse, and on April 26th last he became an inmate of the Hednesford (Staffs.) Military Hospital to undergo treatment for valvular disease of the heart., which it is stated had been brought on by attacks of rheumatic fever, from which lie suffered whilst serving with the Forces in India previous to the war. Everything possible was done for him, but he succumbed.on Saturday, and the interment of the remains took place at the North Wingfield Churchyard on Thursday with military honours. Aged 30 years, deceased was married and leaves two children, residing in Church View, Hepthorne Lane. He was one of the "Conternptibles" and a Mons hero, who came of a fighting stock.
His great grandfather took part in the battle of Waterloo. his grandfather went through the ordeals of the Crimea, and his father, Mr. W. Leverett, of Cross Street, Hepthorne Lane, took part in the Zulu war in 1879. The latter had five sons and a son-in-law with the Colours during the great war, and one son, Pte. Harold Leverett, died of wounds received in action.

Derbyshire Times - Saturday 30 July 1921

William was at his son George's funeral.
William was born in 1860 in Northants Byfield and married to Emma Leverett.
In the 1901 census he is shown as a green grocer living with his wife, mother, daughter and five sons (including George) at Church Row North Winfield, North Wingfield, Chesterfield, Derbyshire
The greengrocer buisness obviously not doing well as by 1911  he is shown as a Coal Miner hewer
