1922 Obituary [2]

FRANCIS GEORGE HART was born at Canes in the parish of North Weald Bassett, Essex, on the 5th February, 1858, and died at Epping on the 21st November, 1921.

He was educated mainly at Felsted Grammar School.

After leaving school he helped his father on the farm for a time, but, this work not being congenial, he studied science and electricity at Hammond's Electrical School at Red Lion-square, Holborn.

He afterwards joined Messrs. Phillips and Harrison, and later became connected with Messrs. Peto and Radford, of which firm he was the secretary for many years until it was amalgamated with Messrs. Pritchett and Gold and the Electrical Power Storage Company a short time before he died.

He was a very keen Freemason and belonged to several lodges.

He was elected a Member of the Institution in 1895.
