1912 William Angus died; his son Thomas Knox Angus continued in business as a coach builder

1919-27 Maker of 14 hp cars.
After a further few hundred cars had been completed at Birtley, production was moved to the old Grahame-White aircraft works in Hendon, Middlesex.

1927 The last cars, almost certainly assembled from existing stocks of parts, were completed in 1927. It is estimated that approximately 3,000 Angus-Sanderson cars were made, most of them in the firm's early years, of which only a tiny handful survives.
