1953 Obituary [1]

WE have learned with regret of the death of Mr. Clifford Green, deputy water engineer of Kingston upon Hull, which occurred, suddenly, on April 29th. He was sixty-three.

Mr. Green was born and educated in Leeds, and began his engineering career in that city in 1906 as an apprentice with Hathorn Davey and Co., Ltd.

Subsequently he held appointments with Beck and Co., Ltd., in London, and with A. C. Potter and Co., Ltd., of Grantham. While he was with this latter firm Mr. Green was responsible for the design and installation of new pumping plant for the Dunswell works of the Kingston upon Hull water undertaking. He joined the engineering staff of that undertaking in 1929 and six years later became deputy water engineer and manager.

Mr. Green was an associate member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, an associate of the Institution of Water Engineers, and a past-president of the Diesel Engine Users Association. For several years he had served as the chairman of the D.E.U.A. working costs committee.
