Sad Death of Bryn Edwards
Bryn Edwards, who died recently, was an outstanding Foundryman. He was awarded a Diploma at the National Foundry College and in 1946 joined the Institute of British Foundrymen, his membership spanning 64 years. In 1972-73 he was Birmingham Branch President and was a regular attendee at Branch Meetings and at reunions of the National Foundry College.
He served the earlier part of his career at Leys Malleable and was much influenced by working for Jack Hill, a Past National President of the Institute. He and Jack formed a formidable team working on new projects for the company.
After a period working at Castings p.l.c. he became Works Director at Green and Russell, a position he held for most of his working life.
Bryn’s other passion was old films. He established a home cinema and restored many old films with which he entertained his friends and his old college friends at their reunions.
During his career he was always supported by his wife Audrey. We send our deepest condolences to his family at this sad time.
