St Nicholas' Church, Beverley

Joseph Stretch Crowther (1820–1893), usually known as J. S. Crowther, was an English architect who practised in Manchester.

Crowther studied under Richard Tattersall from 1838–1843.[1][2] He worked as a managing clerk for Henry Bowman until 1846, when Bowman took him into partnership, the firm being known as Bowman and Crowther.[2]

Crowther then went into independent practice, designing churches in Gothic Revival style,[3] and villas in a variety of styles.[4] He was appointed as the diocesan architect for Manchester Cathedral,[1] and was working on the restoration of the cathedral at the time of his death,[3] which occurred in March 1893.[2]
