1929 Obituary [1]

LESLIE SARJEANT died on Tuesday, April 16, 1929, at his home at Gerrard's Cross, at the age of thirty-four years.

The son of the late Captain Walter Sarjeant, he was born in Egypt, and afterwards educated at Felstead. Mr. Sarjeant was the oldest member of the staff of Fry's Metal Foundries, for when Mr. John Fry left the business of Messrs. Hallett and Fry, of Rotherhithe, to establish his own works in 1912 he took Mr. Leslie Sarjeant straight from school to be his personal assistant, and for many years Mr. Sarjeant was a most successful works manager.

Mr. Sarjeant's engaging personality, and cheerful, kindly disposition, endeared him to everyone with whom he came in contact.

Mr. Sarjeant was elected a member of the Institute on September 11, 1918.
