1889 Obituary [1]

HERBERT FRANCIS WARING, second son of Mr. Thomas Waring, of Cardiff, was born at that place on the 2nd of October, 1859.

He was educated chiefly at Cheltenham College, where he took a good position in Physics and Mathematics.

He entered his father’s office in 1876, and making rapid progress in the profession, was elected an Associate Member of the Institution on the 4th of March, 1884. He soon took charge of the engineering portion of the business, and carried out a scheme of waterworks for the Borough of Aberavon; a filtration system of sewerage for the City of Llandaff; sewerage and sanitary works for, various estates, and, up to the day before his death, was engaged in completing a scheme of drainage for the Cardiff Union Sanitary Authority.

Mr. Herbert Waring became a partner in the firm of T. Waring and Sons, Civil Engineers and Land Agents, in 1885. Being of a quiet and retiring disposition, he took no active part in the proceedings of the Institution. His death, on the 12th of August, 1888, from a fit of apoplexy after a few hours’ illness, was a great shock to his family and to a numerous circle of personal friends.
