Mr. T. F. Ashe, whose death at Oswestry is recorded today, was notably typical of those shrewd men of business who, while unproclaimed on the housetops, powerfully aid in the maintenance of the commercial activities of Liverpool.

Extract from the Liverpool Mercury, dated Wednesday, 3 April 1895
The late Mr. T. F. Ashe, whose well-apportioned bequests to Liverpool charities are chronicled in another column, was a man of remarkable energy and force of character. He was full of local patriotism which sought the welfare of the city, and a pet scheme of his was its further development by means of a roadway extending from South Castle Street, and under the Custom House, into Park Lane. In this project there was associated with him Mr. T. D. Philip.
