Architect and conservationist. After WW2 she worked in the architectural practice run by Richard Sheppard. She was particularly active in the Bedford Park Society where she monitored planning applications in both the Ealing and Hounslow halves of the conservation area.
Our colleague, Andrew Behan, has researched this lady: Beryl Brownsword was born on 4 February 1919 in Wolstanton, Staffordshire, the daughter of Harold Brownsword and Ethel Brownsword née Taylor-Howson. The 1939 England and Wales Register shows them all living at 40 Rusthall Avenue, Acton. Her father was a Headmaster of an Art School and she was listed as a Student Architect but also a member of the British Red Cross. Her death was recorded in February 2007 in the London Borough of Ealing.
