1904 Obituary [3]

The death or Sir Henry Stephenson - Stephenson, Blake and Co., typefounders, Sheffield - is a severe loss to the city. Sir Henry, who had served in the office of mayor, had been foremost in the educational, municipal, and social life of Sheffield for many years, and no man had laboured more diligently and ably, or contributed more generously, to the great schemes of public enterprise which had been so marked a feature of Sheffield history during the last twenty-five or thirty years. Sir Henry's partner - Major Blake, of Eccleshall - died only a week or two ago.
