William Evans (d.1899) of the Bowling Iron Co

1899 Obituary [1]

WILLIAM EVANS, one of the veterans of the British iron trade, died at his residence, Ilkley, Yorkshire, in May 1899. He was selected over thirty years ago to undertake the management of the celebrated works of Bowling, Yorkshire, which, with the Low Moor Works, Bradford, the Farnley, and the Monkbridge Works, was distinguished for the manufacture of the best Yorkshire iron, and also carried on, to a limited extent, the manufacture of crucible steel. He retired from the Bowling Works some twelve years ago.

He was an original member of the Iron and Steel Institute, and was elected Member of Council in 1880, and Vice-President in 1883.
