Obituary - Basil Brearley

18 Jun 2014

It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of Basil Brearley, grandson of Harry Brearley.


Basil lived in Australia with his wife Margaret, who survives him. He took a great interest in the BSSA events of 2013, celebrating the 100 year anniversary of his grandfather's first commercial production of stainless steel. Unfortunately,  ill health prevented him from being able to travel to Sheffield but he was able to see photographs of the event and to listen to recordings of the various speeches made at the Centenary Dinner in the Cutlers' Hall.
