Frederick Walter Cole FMGP (1908-1998) was an apprentice at William Morris & Co before the war and became their chief designer after the war. The studio closed in 1958 and Cole joined Wippell & Co, before setting up his own studio in Fulham in 1961. This ran until at the invitation of the Dean and Chapter he set up the pioneering restoration studio at Canterbury Cathedral.
