He married Mary James on 15th Sep 1859 in Stanwix, Carlisle and they had one daughter.

Garnett's was a well respected firm of cabinet makers and he was a generous local benefactor to many churches.

He laid the foundation stone at Penketh Methodist Church.

The workshop is a familiar landmark on the Warrington skyline with its Italianate crenellated water tower.

Its not the most interesting of sites and its pretty trashed in places, but there are a few interesting features I wanted to see after viewing a report a couple of weeks back.

Did not attempt the water tower, had a look up from the top floor and there were more holes on the way up than solid steps, so decided to give it a miss as I was alone.
