He practised at Adelphi Terrace, Salford, for twenty years, until in search of better air he moved to Didsbury for a further twenty years.

He was much interested in church matters under Canon Hugh Stowell, of Christchurch, Salford, and was a generous subscriber to charities at Didsbury. He died there in Park Terrace on Oct 26th, 1886.
