Wilford Henry Taylor (c1875-1952) of Johnson and Phillips
1952 Obituary 
We record with regret the death of Mr. Wilford Henry Taylor, which occurred on January 1st, at the age of seventy-seven.
He joined the contracts staff of Johnson and Phillips, Ltd., in 1908, and, subsequently, became assistant contracts manager with responsibility for his company's business in the North-Western and Midlands areas. In this capacity Mr. Taylor was responsible for the erection of numerous sections of the Central Electricity Board's grid lines and for many colliery electrification schemes.
Mr. Taylor officially retired in 1939, but continued, however, to serve the company in an advisory capacity right up to the time of his death. He had been a member of the Institution of Electrical Engineers for fifty years.
