Obituary 1901 - William Asquith (1840-1901)[1][2]

"...M. Asquith was born on March 16th, 1840, and died on Monday last, March 18th, after a long and most painful illness, borne with the greatest fortitude. He had been connected all his life with the machine tool trade, but for the last fifteen months had taken no active part in the management of the successful and well-known business established by him thirty-six years ago, now being carried on at Highroad Well Works, Halifax.

During his career Mr. Asquith built many tools of large dimensions for the British and foreign Governments, and the leading engineering works in this country and America. Mr. Asquith was undoubtedly a man of shrewd business and mechanical ability, an acknowledged authority...".
