WE regret to have to record the death of Mr. Harry William Young, which took place on the 1st inst. at his home, Tittenhurst, Moseley, Birmingham. Mr. Young was one of the partners of Messrs. Youngs, manufacturers of lifting appliances, of Ryland-street Works, Birmingham. He was the son of Mr. Thomas Young, and was born at Wednesbury in 1865 . . . began his engineering career in the works of Elliotts Metal Co, of Selly Oak. He was with this firm for seven years, and in 1887 joined with his brother in forming the above-mentioned firm. To do this necessitated the purchase of the businesses of John Williams, of Ryland street, irmingham, and of W. Eades and Co., of St. Peter's place. For the last seven years Mr. H. W. Young has been far from well, and unable continuously to attend to the business.
