Harrison and Hattrell

Architectural practice

A partnership has arranged between Mr. W. H. Hattrell of Coventry (late West Hartlepool) and Mr. F. Harrison, West Hartlepool and Preston, architects and surveyors offices, 28 Hertford Street, Coventry. [Coventry Herald 4 September 1896 page 5]

Although the Coventry directories contain no entries for W H Hattrell before 1898, the drawing register for the Hertford Street office, still in the possession of Michael Hattrell, commences on 28 September 1896, although some drawing work had evidently been carried out earlier. At first the Leicester office was at 34 Friars Lane, Leicester. However, by 1902 Frederick Harrison’s address is given as 3 Welbeck Road.  By 1903 the Coventry office had moved to 23 Hertford Street according to the entry in the Street Directory of that year.


 The partnership hitherto subsisting between F Harrison and W H Hattrell, architects, Leicester and Coventry under the style Harrison & Hattrell has been dissolved. [Building News 3 January 1908 Page 5]
