Spalding’s 1887 Directory lists Alfred Kett (1843 – 1920), one of the owners of the firm of monumental masons and wood carvers Rattee and Kett, as living at No. 1 Wilton Terrace. Alfred trained as a carver and builder with his father George Kett (1809 – 1872) who worked on commissions for the new Houses of Parliament under A.W.N. Pugin. George carved the Royal Coat of Arms in the House of Lords and would have seen Wilton’s numerous monuments at Westminster Abbey nearby. The company, Rattee and Kett, operated from substantial premises in Station Road with offices, stone works, a joinery shop and a builder’s yard and spent 23 years restoring the external fabric of Westminster Abbey. During a period that spanned the late 1940’s to the early 1960’s Rattee and Kett took a lead role in rebuilding the North Transept and the Sanctuary at St. Paul’s Cathedral after they took a direct hit from enemy action during WWII. They celebrated 160 years of history in 2002.
