1865 Henry Dircks, Engineer, 16 Bucklersbury, London E.C.
Member of the Society of Engineers
Mr. Dircks will be long and well remembered in connection with his contributions to the literature of the profession and of science generally, his latest and chief work being The Life of the Marquis of Worcester. Of a keen and observant mind, and a kindly and genial temperment, his death could not fail to prove a source of regret to all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance.
