    217 A fascinating man. Born into a typical mining family in Hindley, Lancashire, he attended Wigan Technical College (Night School) and obtained an external BSc from London University.

    During the 1920's and 1930's he used to spend some of his holidays on bicycle riding tours throughout Germany and witnessed the rise to power of the National Socialist Party under Adolf Hitler.

    A keen amateur radio ham he and his brother built and operated several 'cat's whisker' sets.

    Bill Lee was involved in the installation of the first set of traffic lights in the United Kingdom. This took place in Oxford Street, London and Bill used to recount how the team "got the timings right" by pedalling furiously up the street from one set of traffic lights to the next whilst clutching a stopwatch.

    He claimed that, during WW2 he was involved in the initial production of the then revolutionary man-made fibre which was later to be known as 'Nylon'.

    Immediately after the War ended Bill was sent to the USA for six months where, on behalf of United Glass Co, he purchased a Glassworks, in kit form and had it shipped to the UK. It was re-erected in the New Cross Gate area of South London and Bill managed it for many years. Eventually, he rose to be a Director of the Company.

    Following an accident, in which he was severely burned and an operative killed, Bill retired and lived with his housekeeper, in Sanderstead.

    He never married nor had any children.

    Even at the age of 80 he purchased a Sinclair Spectrum computer, realised that he could design a few basic games and programmed them into the machine himself.

    Fortunately, Bill never went senile or suffered the debilitating illnesses of old age. His passing was very sudden at the age of 89.

    223 According to family sources, Arthur was an alcoholic and was committed to Hanwell Hospital. His wife refused to sign to permit his discharge.

    In the 1881 census the hospital was described as Hanwell Middlesex Lunatic Asylum, Norwood, Middlesex then after 1899 as the London County Asylum, until it became Hanwell again in 1929. The name changed again in 1938 to St Bernard's Hospital. The address was Uxbridge Road, Southall, UB1 3EU. In 1971 it had 2,039 beds, 189 in locked wards. It was later absorbed in Ealing Hospital as St Bernard's Wing. Some hospital records are subject to closure periods, for example, access is not usually granted to the records of individual patients less than 100 years old, except via a doctor or social worker. It seems that Arthur's records would not normally be available until after 2032.

    An enquiry regarding his death, said to have been in hospital in Epsom and registered in Wandsworth, September quarter 1932, Wandsworth registration area, volume 1d, p. 450 (he was 60), yielded this advice on tracing him:

    There was a group of mental hospitals in the Epsom area, collectively known as the 'Epsom Cluster'. The National Archives (TNA), (formerly known as the Public Record Office) at Kew has the following list MH94 relating to registers kept by the Board of Control 1913-1960 recording name, sex, name of hospital, admission date, discharge/death date. Further information on individual medical and legal circumstance is in patient diaries in the same deposit. All MH94 records are open to the public. The Hospital Records (HOSPREC) database can be searched once the particular hospital has been identified. This is a joint project between the Wellcome Trust and TNA to see where the surviving records are held.

    The local rate books and electoral registers would be another way to trace Arthur. The Surrey History Centre deals mainly with records concerned with the modern administrative County of Surrey, and Wandsworth is no longer part of Surrey but is now the London Borough of Wandsworth. The records for the borough are at the London Metropolitan Archives, London Metropolitan Archives, 40 Northampton Road, London EC1R 0HB, Tel: 020 7332 3820. The local studies library in Wandsworth also hold records for the borough: Wandsworth Local History Service Library, Battersea Library 265 Lavender Hill, London, SW11 1JB, Tel: 020 8871 7753

    William Ashe. 1851 - 1910. Born at Masham in North Yorkshire. Started his career with Leeds Police and joined the Middlesbrough Police in 1866, appointed Chief Constable of Middlesbrough in 1884 (Possibly 1883). In 1902 he resigned through ill health.

    In there is the following story: In 1866 Police Sergeant William Ashe pursued embezzling Borough Accountant Thomas Cameron Close. Ashe's quest took him to Australia, where he got his man and brought him home to Middlesbrough, in triumph.
