(b Wolverhampton, 12 May 1861;
d Wadhurst, E. Sussex, 6 April 1938).
English architect. He was the son of a Midlands architect, George
Bidlake (1830–92). After some experience in his father’s office, he
worked as assistant to Robert Edis, Bodley & Garner and Rowand
Anderson. He began working in Birmingham c. 1888; most of his work,
which consists mainly of churches and houses, was done in and around
that city. He designed and built nine churches, all but one of which
belong to the late phase of the Gothic Revival: they are late
Perpendicular in inspiration and inventive in detail. Each has the
nave and chancel united in a single airy space. The finest is St
Agatha’s (1898–1901), Sparkbrook, Birmingham.
