CHARLES HENRY BINGHAM was born in Sheffield on 28th May 1848.

He was educated at Tinsley Vicarage, afterwards at Storthes Hall, near Huddersfield, and subsequently at Neuwied on the Rhine.

After serving a short time at the locomotive works of the Great Northern Railway at Doncaster, he entered the electroplate and cutlery works of Messrs. Walker and Hall, at Sheffield, when the business was being carried on by his elder brother, Colonel J. E. Bingham, and his uncle, the late Mr. H. Hall. On the retirement of the latter he became a partner, devoting himself more particularly to the manufacturing part of the business, to the extension of the premises, and to the inventing and perfecting of the machinery.

In 1882 he joined the Cutler's Company, and was Master Cutler in 1894-1895.

Having been in indifferent health for some months, his death occurred rather suddenly at his residence in Sheffield on 2ud October 1900, at the age of fifty-two.

He became a Member of this Institution in 1890.
