Benjamin Baud

Benjamin Baud was a 19th-century architect and pupil of Francis Goodwin. Between 1826 and 1851 he exhibited at the Royal Academy, and, in 1829, he entered the Royal Academy Schools. He is known to have worked on the rebuilding of Windsor Castle with Jeffry Wyatville from 1826 to 1840 and to have won, in 1838, the competition to design the Brompton Cemetery in West London. After designing several buildings in the cemetery, in 1844, he was dismissed. He later turned his attention to private houses until he was commissioned, in 1857, to design the Lonsdale Mausoleum in Lowther Churchyard, Westmorland, for the 2nd Earl of Lonsdale. Baud died 17 April 1875 in Richmond, Surrey.
