Bio Notes: Frederick William Meston was born on 23 May 1895 and was articled to George Bennett Mitchell of Aberdeen from February 1910 to September 1914, studying at Aberdeen School of Architecture. He served with the Gordon Highlanders in France from 1914 to 1921, reaching the rank of Captain, but returned to the architectural profession in 1923 as assistant to Gall & Hay in Aberdeen. The following year he left to take up a position as architectural assistant to Lanarkshire Education Authority. In 1926 he commenced practice on his own account, as senior partner in the firm of Meston & Stewart. The identity of Stewart is uncertain but it may have been John S Stewart, Architect to Lanarkshire Education Authority, or more probably John Henry Fraser Stewart, who was presumably John S Stewart's son.

The partnership of Meston & Stewart was dissolved in 1931. Meston moved to London soon thereafter.
