Frederick Mandley Bailey - second son of William H. Bailey.

1943 Obituary [1]

"THE LATE MR. F. M. BAILEY - We regret to learn of the death on August 25th of Mr. Frederick Mandley Bailey, managing director of Sir W. H. Bailey and Co., Ltd., Albion Works and Ellesmere Foundry, Patricroft, Lancashire.

Mr. Bailey was the last surviving son of Sir W. H. Bailey and a grandson of the founder of the firm which was established in 1839. No doubt the total destruction by enemy action of the firm's former premises in Salford had its effect on Mr. Bailey's health . This destruction occurred in 1940, up to which date the firm had occupied land in Oldfield Road, Salford, for over 100 years."
