George Nother was born in Québec City, Quebec, on 14 March 1897.
Nother was a labourer when he enlisted in the 171st Canadian Infantry Battalion (Québec Rifles) in his hometown on 8 April 1916. He was later transferred to the 13th Canadian Infantry Battalion. On 1 October 1918, Nother was killed by shelling near Sancourt, France, during the Battle of the Canal du Nord. His body was not recovered. He was one of the 91 casualties the 13th Battalion suffered that day as it attacked German positions around Blécourt. Most of those casualties resulted when the Germans launched a strong counterattack that forced the 13th,14th and 16th battalions — all involved in the attack — to withdraw from their furthest gains to positions that were more easily defended.
George Nother is commemorated on the Canadian National Vimy Memorial, on Vimy Ridge, in France.
