Ernest Harry Ellingham (1891-1926)

1926 Obituary [1]

ERNEST HARRY ELLINGHAM, a Londoner by birth, received his technical education at Regent Street Polytechnic, and at Doncaster Technical College.

In 1908, after a year with a firm of electrical engineers in London, he joined the Great Northern Railway as a premium apprentice, at the age of seventeen.

After the usual five years' shop and running shed training he was appointed an Assistant District Locomotive Superintendent.

In 1920, after war service in the R.F.A. and R.G.A., Mr. Effingham obtained a works-managership in the North of England, and in 1921 received an Indian railway appointment.

Ill-health, however, prevented him taking up his duties, and his death occurred on 8th November 1926.

He became a Graduate of this Institution in 1913, and an Associate Member in 1920.
