Notes for Alfred Creswick OLIVER

Member* of the firm of Thomas Oliver & Son Ltd. from 1879 to 1887 when he went to Oxford. He was also a member from 1998 when the company was re-formed. In 1890 he took Holy Orders, and after serving in four curacies at Pilling and Middleton in Lancashire, Wirksworth in Derbyshire, and Eccleshall in Staffordshire, became Vicar of Barlaston in Staffordshire in 1902. In 1918 he became Rector of Fretherne, Gloucestershire.

* As a member he owned shares in the company but took no part in its management. Although the available evidence shows that he was a member until 1887, and again from 1898, it is highly likely that he was a member continuously from 1879, as were other members of the Oliver family. [102]

In 1940 he wrote the 'History of (Thomas Oliver & Sons Ltd) during 150 Years'. It was hand-written and probably never copied to the family or published. In which case we are very lucky to have found this one and only copy! [102]
