1892 Obituary 
Death of Mr. Edward Manlove. The death announced at the Oriel Lodge, Derby, of Mr. Edward Manlove, who. has been prominently connected with the commercial life Nottingham for upwards half century. In conjunction with the late Mr. Alexander Alliott (father of Mr. J. B. Alliott), he established engineering works in 1837, a commencement being made, we believe, at Lenton, the business being soon after removed to the present site, Bloomsgrove Works, Ilkeston-road. Various developments followed, and time good trade the firm now employs about 800 hands.
The late Mr. Manlove continued to take active part in the business up to a few years ago and when the firm was turned into a limited liability company he became chairman of the board of directors. The firm has upwards of a score of specialities for the manufacture of machinery, including Fryer's Destructor (in operation in Derby and other towns) for destroying refuse; sugar machinery, laundry apparatus, pumps, engines, and the like. The firm has a large home and foreign connection, and may said to owe its present high position largely to the intelligence and enterprise of the late Mr. Manlove.
At one time the deceased took considerable interest the local affairs of Nottingham. His funeral took place in the Church Cemetery, Nottingham, to-day, the body having been brought over from Derby for the purpose. The obsequies were attended by the near relatives and the clerks and heads of various departments the Radford works.
Mr. Manlove was in his 86th year.
