About Edward Graham Simpson

Edward Graham Simpson along with his cousin Fredrick Coleridge Simpson inherited the firm WB Simpson and Sons from their fathers. They set about reorganising the company to meet the demands of large scale plain tiling required for the many new operating theatres, toilets and clinics throughout the country. They also had to meet the challenge of the largest contract ever undertaken by a single tile company at the time, the London Underground. This contract comprised station work to the Hampstead & Highgate Railway, the Piccadilly & Brompton Railway and the Bakerloo Line. Within the price of £100,000 was included the necessary cranage to lower the materials and our own trains for moving about underground! The storey of the underground is a whole subject in itself, and further details and records are available. In fact to this day, the company is actively involved in the creation of new stations on projects such as the Jubilee Line Extension, to the maintenance and updating of many existing stations throughout the network.
