1899 Obituary [1]

THOMAS STANLEY CLEMINSHAW, born on the 10th March, 1851, served apprenticeships at the London Steam Crane and Engine Works, Leicester, and at the Gorton Works of Beyer, Peacock and Co.

From 1873 to 1875 he was engaged at the South Metropolitan Gasworks, Old Kent Road, and in 1876 he proceeded to New Zealand as Manager of the Christchurch Gasworks. He held that post for five years, during part of which time he also acted as Engineer to the Ashburton Gas Company in the same colony.

In 1882 he was in charge of the reconstruction and extension of the works of the Greymouth Gas Company, and in 1883 he was appointed Engineer to the Launceston Gas Company, Tasmania. Mr. Cleminshaw carried out the duties of that post with satisfaction to his directors until 1897. In the following year he accepted the appointment of Manager to the Colombo Gas and Water Company, Ceylon.

Mr. Cleminshaw’s career was unfortunately cut short by fever, which proved fatal on the 18th March, 1899.

He was elected an Associate Member of the Institution on the 27th May, 1884.
