Description

1963 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III Saloon SDW599

A smart, sound and appealing example, cheerfully painted to a high standard in two shades of blue enhanced by very nice chrome work and original pale blue/grey leather in good order, complemented by excellent wood veneers. Unusually, the car has the advantage of a Webasto folding sunroof – very much of the era and very popular at the time. The car presents very nicely and is a good all-round specimen, driving well on its radial ply tyres, benefitting from recent refurbishment and attention. We are also pleased to report that the car is fitted with air conditioning, which is working well. With the first, company owners until 1990, now offered serviced, prepared and MoT tested until November 2020. Please note that although the photos show KGH 760A, the original registration number, 444 GUW has now been re-instated.

Snippets: The Bemrose Printers

The first owner of SDW599 was Sir John “Max” Bemrose (1904/86), he was a great-grandson of William Bemrose (1792/1875), proprietor of Bemrose Printing in Derby; William’s sons Sir Henry (1827/1911) & William (1831/1908) took over the company in 1857 when their father retired.  Henry also became a director of Parr’s Derby Bank & was MP for Derby from 1895/1900, William had a keen interest in arts & crafts and he became joined the board of Royal Crown Derby as well as publishing several books on porcelain, woodcarving and arts.  Dr Henry Howe Bemrose (1857/1939), took the surname of Arnold-Bemrose to save being confused with his father, he joined the family firm in 1879 and became Mayor of Derby in 1909, Dr Henry’s outside interest was geology and wrote some 20 papers on subject and was the recipient of the Murchison Medal in 1938.  His son Sir John “Max” Bemrose was the 4th generation of the Bemrose family to take the helm of the company & was director from 1938 to 1979. In 1960 he was knighted in the Queen’s Birthday Honours & in 1967 he became the Deputy Lieutenant of Derbyshire and High Sheriff in 1969.  Sir & Lady Bemrose enjoyed music, gardening and travel which is reflected in the bursary which was established in Sir Max’s memory at the Royal Northern School of Music, prior to Lady Bemrose’s death (at the age of 100) she gave an interview to the Derby Evening Telegraph describing her life in music and their international travels – America, South Africa, Australia, Israel and Egypt – she mentioned that whilst in Egypt she had to “restrain my husband from diving into the Nile.”
