Fitzherbert Albert Bugby Lord ( -1943), chairman of W. F. Dennis and Co

1943 Obituary [1]

The death of Mr. F. A. B. Lord on January 19, 1943, closed a career in the cable and wire industries of no less than 66 years.

Joining the firm of W. F. Dennis and Company in 1876, Mr. Lord became a senior partner in 1902 and Chairman in 1937. Throughout his life his energies were devoted to this firm, which held one of the most important Continental agencies, and he took part in many of the developments of the wire and cable industries in the early part of the present century, particularly in connection with the installation of electric tramways and the telephone and telegraph systems.

To his industrial interests Mr. Lord added masonic and civic work, and at the time of his death he had been a Member of the Court of Common Council for 25 years, during part of that time having served as Deputy of the Ward of Cordwainer.

Mr. Lord was an Original Member of the Institute of Metals.
