Categories: Food & Drink, Philanthropy

Sausage entrepreneur and philanthropist. Born at 113 Jermyn Street. In 1870 he was made a partner in his father's sausage making business and with his brother Frederick, developed it as a countrywide concern. The company usually saw a fall of sales during the summer months and from this, the idea of making ice cream was born. He became a generous supporter of many charities and established the Thomas Wall Trust to support students' education. He died at his home, Blythewood, Worcester Road, Sutton, Surrey.
