George Bill-Gozzard ( -1939)
1939 Obituary 
Mr. George Bill-Gozzard, a metal merchant of long standing in Birmingham, died on January 3, 1939, at his home in Tenbury Road, King's Heath, after an operation and an illness lasting several months.
Mr. Bill-Gozzard was a native of Birmingham and was educated at Christ Church School, Stratford Road.
He was an original member of the Institute of Metals and acted as Honorary Treasurer of the Birmingham Local Section from 1930 until the time of his death. In the minutes of the local section it is recorded that, on his appointment as Treasurer, "Mr. Bill-Gozzard's kind offer to guarantee an overdraft of £20 be accepted." This entry well expresses the spirit of willing service in which the treasurer undertook his duties. He was always present at meetings and was ready with helpful advice when important decisions had to be taken. His genial presence will be very greatly missed.
