George Flett (1855-1910) of Dick, Kerr and Co
1910 Obituary 
GEORGE FLETT died on July 27, 1910, at Birmingham, as the result of a motor car accident.
He was born in 1855 at Wick, and received his early education at Glasgow.
About 1882 he became associated with the firm of Messrs. Dick, Kerr & Co., the well-known electrical engineering firm which has played a large part in the development of electric tramways in this country, of which work Mr. Flett may be said to be one of the pioneers. He was also largely associated with the conversion to electric driving of the Liverpool and Southport section of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway.
He was elected a member of the Iron and Steel Institute in 1891.
