This chapter focuses on the decline of Charles Cammell and Co. during the period in the last quarter of the nineteenth century. It explains that founder Charles Cammell died at the end of 1878 and was replaced by managing director George Wilson. Wilson was able to get new contracts for ship armours but died untimely on December 1, 1885. He was replaced by his brother Alexander who expanded the range of products which required new investments while production remained low.
