1908 Obituary 
JOSEPH BEARDMORE died at Moreton Lodge, Eye, Herefordshire, at the age of forty-one. He was a younger son of the late William Beardmore of Parkhead, and a director of Messrs. William Beardmore & Co. of Dalmuir and Parkhead. The deceased gentleman had been in ill-health for some time, and had practically retired on that account from the active duties connected with the management of the company. He received a thorough training in the business, and it was with great regret that ill-health caused him to leave the works, where up till about two years ago he had charge of the important forge-works at Parkhead.
He was elected a member of the Iron and Steel Institute in 1895.
