Cyril Stapley Chettoe (1893-1963)
"WE regret to record the death, on November 8, of MR. C. S. CHETTOE. Cyril Stapley Chettoe was born in 1893, and after being educated privately, took an engineering degree at King's College, London. Following a pupilage with H. W. Fitzsimons and P. Westacott, he held a post at Salford and moved on to the Ministry of Transport, where he became assistant chief engineer and chief bridge engineer. In 1954 he retired from the Ministry and became a consultant, specialising in bridge and road work. In this capacity he was engaged in Australia, Iraq, Malaya and Sierra Leone, as well as in Great Britain. Mr. Chettoe was a member of several professional bodies, including the Institution of Civil Engineers, and until recently was chairman of the British Section of the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering. For the last eight years he was consultant to G. Maunsell and Partners."
