George Garrett (c1846-1908)

1908 Obituary [1]

GEORGE GARRET, one of the leading ironmasters in Scotland, died at Coatbridge on May 11, 1908, at the age of sixty-two. He was a native of Wales, and brother of the late William Garrett, the well-known authority on wire-rod rolling. In early life he was engaged by the Russian Government to erect ironworks near St. Petersburg.

When he went to Coatbridge he, with his partner (Mr. Davie), erected the Waverley Iron and Steel Works.

He was elected a member of the Iron and Steel Institute in 1884, and was an active member of the Reception Committee for the Glasgow meeting in 1901.
