Harry Griffin Stanyon (c1914-1946) of John Dale


1946 Obituary [1]

HARRY GRIFFIN STANYON. Mr. H. G. Stanyon died on 19 November 1945, at the age of 32.

After training in the laboratories of Messrs. Cochran's. Iron Works, Middlesbrough, he then went to Messrs. E. Hind, Ltd., of South Bank, first as Chief Chemist and subsequently taking over control of their alloy manufacture.

In 1940 he came to London to join the staff of John Dale, Ltd., New Southgate, N. 11, where he remained until the time of his death, being first Chief Chemist of the Light Alloy Foundry Section and finally, from 1944 onwards, in control of the production of light alloy billets and ingots.

Mr. Stanyon met his death by a tragic accident, while carrying out this work. He was demonstrating a furnace technique to a group of his foremen and men when a violent explosion occurred, the cause of which has never been established. He died with three of his men as the result of the severe burns received. L. R. CARR.
