William Henry Carder (1860-1925)
1925 Obituary 
"Another very well-known and highly respected member of Midland Iron and Steel circles died on November 27th in the person of Mr. W. H. Carder, of Tividale.
Mr Carder held secretarial positions which made him one of the best-known men in the industry. About twenty-three years ago he was appointed secretary of the South Staffordshire Mond Gas Co, Dudley Port, a position he retained until his death, and he succeeded the late Sir Gilbert Claughton as a director of the company.
He was elected secretary of the Staffordshire Iron and Steel Institute as far back as 1881, and retained the office until about nine years ago. Mr. Carder took a keen interest in technical education and engineering progress, and was closely in touch with most of the associations in the country kindred to the one of which he was secretary for so many years.
