Trade unionist in the General Post Office (affiliated to the Western District Office). Became Secretary of the Fawcett Association in 1892, a post from which he was dismissed, together with the chairman William Clery, for lobbying MPs. Later became the chairman of the Government Workers' Federation.
The plaque claims he founded the Fawcett Association so it seems odd he only became its Secretary 2 years later. Perhaps he was a co-founder.
