George Anthony Millward (c1854-1907)

1907 Obituary [1]

GEORGE ANTHONY MILLWARD died at Handsworth on July 21, 1907, at the age of fifty-three. He was born in South Staffordshire, and was for some years steelworks manager at the Patent Shaft and Axletree Company's works, Wednesbury.

In 1896 he was appointed manager of the Shelton Iron and Steel Works. This post he held until 1899, during which period he carried out a number of extensions and put down new furnaces, rolling-mills, and engines.

In 1899 he purchased the Knutton Forge from the late Mr. Francis Stanier, and these works, which had stood idle for a number of years, were soon afterwards reopened.

Mr. Millward afterwards returned to the Shelton Iron, Steel, and Coal Company, subsequently removing to Handsworth as the Birmingham representative of the company. He was a member of the Staffordshire Iron and Steel Institute, and of the North of England Institute of Mining and Mechanical Engineers.

He was elected a member of the Iron and Steel Institute in 1889.
