Moses Bayliss (c1816-1895)

1895 Obituary [1]

MOSES BAYLISS died at his residence at Hampstead, on December 19, 1894, aged 78. He retired from active participation in the business of his firm, Bayliss, Jones, & Bayliss, of Cannon Street, London, and Wolverhampton, in 1880.

Some years ago he became chairman of Davies Brothers & Co., Limited, Crown Galvanised Iron Works, Wolverhampton, and until his last illness he took a great interest in the progress of the business.

He was essentially a self-made man, but his position was well established when, in 1853, he helped to establish the firm with which he was so long connected. Owing to his inventive turn of mind, and his peculiar faculty of controlling workmen, he was singularly successful throughout his long business life, and he always exercised great influence on his workmen.

He was elected a member of the Iron and Steel Institute in 1881.
