E. J. May

Categories: Architecture

Born Edward John May. Estate Architect at Bedford Park 1880 - 1885. Died Chislehurst.

From the Bedford Park panel: "E. J. May was the last pupil of Decimus Burton before joining Shaw’s practice as an assistant. Having been involved with Shaw’s designs for Bedford Park, his appointment as estate architect after Shaw bowed out in 1880 seemed natural. With the development only partially built, May took on the task of completing the layout and designing some of the buildings. He lived at 6 Queen Anne’s Grove until 1888. May was also responsible for 1 Newton Grove and houses in Priory Gardens."
