Oh wow I’ve just discovered this is my 3rd great uncle

Hello I’ve read your request today. My grand parents and father were great friends with ‘Uncle Fred’ and his wife, Ross. They lived in The Knoll in Beckenham as well as a London flat. He gave my mother away at her wedding as her father had died before the event. I remember Fred giving us rides in his Rolls Royce being driven by his chauffeur who I think was called Crisp. My grandparents were very close to him and they went to many lively parties together. I know Fred was very influential in his lifetime and friendly with the leading politicians in the 40s, 50s and 60s. He designed Gatwick and the Kings Way underpass amongst other structures. He was a lively character and always had a big cigar to hand and bought us big bars of Cadbury’s chocolate. I hope you find this interesting.

Sir Frederick Snow is my Great Uncle (my Father’s Uncle). I have some newspaper cuttings from many years ago and a copy of his Who’s Who entry. My Dad said Sir Frederick had two sons, one of whom took over his engineering business which used to have an office in Southwark St. I recall my Dad saying that his Uncle designed an airport in London, not sure whether this was Heathrow or Gatwick, and other airports including Piarcco in Trinidad & Tobago. My Grandmother (Sir Frederick’s Sister) named my Dad after him.
