Basic Biographical Details

Name: Fernand Billerey
Designation: Architect
Born: 1878
Died: 1951
Bio Notes: Fernand Billerey was a French architect, born in 1878 and trained at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. He worked in partnership with Detmar Jellings Blow from 1906, and much of the practice of Blow & Billerey took a French eighteenth-century character, their principal client being the Duke of Westminster.

Blow married in 1910 Winifred Tollemache, second daughter of the Hon Hamilton Tollemache of Helmingham Hall. This consolidated his high society connections, but with the advent of the First World War the practice began to run out of work. In 1916 he became the Duke of Westminster's private secretary and manager of the Grosvenor estates, although his partnership with Billerey was to continue until 1924, Billerey retaining the practice title of Blow & Billerey. Billerey died in 1951.
