Harold Charlesworth Grimshaw

Researcher at Britain’s “Safety in Mines Research Establishment”

(Note: Webpage in preparation)

H.C. (for Harold Charlesworth) Grimshaw was an active researcher at the U.K.’s Safety in Mines Research Board for many years – from at least the 1930s to the 1960s – and published a number of internal reports and other articles on the results of his work. He was apparently from the Manchester area and served his country during World War I. He graduated from the University of Manchester with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry in 1921 and with a Master of Science degree in 1922. His earliest identified publication for the Safety in Mines Research Board was in 1931. It is probable that he was descended from the “Audenshaw” Grimshaw line (see companion webpage); a potential candidate has been identified from that line as H.C. Grimshaw.
