JOHN MUSGRAVE, who died at Eastbourne on the 4th April last, was a member of the firm of Messrs. John Musgrave & Sons (Limited) of the Globe Ironworks, Bolton.

Deceased, who was in his sixty-ninth year, was the third son of the late Mr. John Musgrave, who founded the Globe Works, and had for many years taken an active part in the management of that business. He was the inventor of mechanical arrangements, some of them patented, which were of much service to the firm. At one time he travelled much on behalf of the business, and had a large connection in Russia, where he frequently made long stays.

He became a member of the Institute in 1871.
