George Dalziel was trained by the wood-engraver Charles Gray. In 1839 he founded his own wood-engraving business in London. He was joined by his brother Edward (1817-1905) in 1840 and further members of the family joined the company later.

They produced illustrations for books and magazins and worked with artists like William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and James McNeill Whistler. The books for which they produced illustrations included "Book of Nonsense" (1862) by Edward Lear and both "Alice in Wonderland" (1865) and "Alice Through the Looking-Glass" (1871) by Lewis Carroll.

George Dalziel died in London in 1902. He was buried at the Western part of Highgate Cemetery.
