Career

Bernard was apprenticed to Charles Edward Davis, of Bath, Somerset, between 1863 and 1868.[2] Among his own later pupils was Richard Croft James (1872-1949, of Clifton College) who was articled to him at Bristol from 1889 to 1892.[3] Bernard was President of the Bristol Society of Architects in 1898,[4] having previously acted as its honorary secretary, 1888–1890.[5] He is also recorded in 1893 as a Somerset member of the Sanitary Institute.[6] By 1894, he was a Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects.[7]

He had an extensive practice as a school architect.[8] In 1889, his offices were at 8, St Stephen's Chambers, Baldwin Street, Bristol,[9] and he was at the same address in 1904.[10]

The firm of W. L. Bernard & Sons of Bristol was still active in the 1930s, after Bernard's death, with offices at 26, Orchard Street.[11]
