W. D. Caroe
William Douglas Caroe (1857 – 1938) was a British architect, particularly of churches.
He was educated at Ruabon and Trinity College, Cambridge, graduating BA in 1879. Caroe was articled to John Loughborough Pearson; he wrote the article on Pearson in the Encyclopædia Britannica, (11th ed., 1911).
He became known as "a consummate master of building according to medieval precedent". The firm he founded, Caroe & Partners, still flourishes, specialising in ecclesiastical architecture, especially the restoration of historic churches.
