WYNDHAM PARTRIDGE THOMAS died in London on October 24, 1923.

He was a director of Richard Thomas & Co., Ltd., iron, steel, and tinplate manufacturers, of London and South Wales. He was a son of the late Mr. Richard Thomas, the founder of the business.

As managing director of the Redbourn Hill Iron and Coal Co., a subsidiary company of Richard Thomas & Co., he devoted himself energetically to the development of that undertaking.
