Charles Steuart Bell Sanderson (1867-1901)

1902 Obituary [1]

CHARLES STEUART BELL SANDERSON, born on the 2nd June, 1867, served an apprenticeship of five years to Mr. J. E. A. Gwynne at the works of Gwynne and Co, engineers, in Essex Street, Strand.

On the completion of his pupilage he entered, in February, 1892, the locomotive department of the London, Tilbury, and Southend Railway Company as an Assistant Engineer. In that capacity he was engaged at the Plaistow locomotive works in Essex, at the company’s warehouses in Commercial Road, London, and in repairing steam-cranes for unloading vessels at their wharves at Thames Haven.

Subsequently he was employed by the Assam Railways and Trading Company to inspect the construction of locomotive engines at the works of Messrs. Dubs of Glasgow. Unfortunately on his return from Glasgow in March, 1893, he had an attack of influenza, accompanied by pleurisy, which affected his lungs and obliged him to reside abroad, first at St. Moritz and Ragatz, and subsequently in South Africa.

He died at Tarkastad in Cape Colony on the 4th October, 1901.

Mr. Sanderson was elected an Associate Member of the Institution on the 6th December, 1892.
