Worked as a decorator with William De Morgan. During 1898-1907 was a partner with De Morgan, Frank Iles and Charles Passenger at Sands End, Fulham. De Morgan retired from potting in 1905 and the Fulham factory closed in 1907. The 3 remaining partners continued the business until 1911. April 1931 he made a tile for the Postman's Park memorial.
No portrait of Passenger available so here is one of his early 20th century tiles at the V&A.
