His son, George Selwyn English (1912-1980) was a composer who established a prominent career scoring music for film and radio documentaries between the 1950s and 1970s. He also composed a symphony (in A minor).
Rhoderick McNeill writes that the 'two George English symphonies, especially the Symphony in A, are equally as worthy of attention as many of the [Alfred] Hill symphonies of the 1950s, and show that Hill was not alone in representing the late-Romantic style in symphonic music in Australia' (The Australian Symphony from Federation to 1960. London: Routledge, 2014, 74).
