CRONE, John George

Born:

Architect


He was born on 13 August 1865 in Tynemouth and articled to John Johnstone in Newcastle in 1883. When Johnstone died in 1884 he transferred to GT Howell until 1887, staying with Howell & Hill as an assistant 1887-9. He was with Edward KNOX in Johannesburg 1889-90 and with WH Dunn back in Newcastle 1890-1. He ran an independent practice in Newcastle 1891-1912 and was elected LRIBA in 1911. It was a largely undistinguished practice with shops and houses for the Co-operative movement in the pit villages around Tyneside figuring as his main area of work. No records have been found of any buildings after 1910. He died in Cockermouth, Cumberland in 1927 aged 62 which suggests that he had retired from practice.
