Born in Leamington, Thomas Bradshaw was the son of John W. Bradshaw, a Dublin solicitor, and it was in Dublin, first at the Rathmines Hospital, and then at Trinity College, that he gained his first experience of medicine. Having graduated as M.D. in 1882 and studied at University College, London, he settled in Liverpool, where a relative, T. H. Waters, was physician to the Royal Infirmary. Bradshaw himself procured house appointments both at the Infirmary and the Northern Hospital. These were succeeded by his election to their honorary staffs and to those of the Stanley Hospital and Samaritan Hospital for Women. He was also lecturer on clinical medicine at Liverpool University. During the 1914-1918 War he served as a major in the 1st Western General Hospital. Bradshaw was president of the Liverpool Medical Institution in 1910 and 1911. His most notable contributions to medical literature were papers embodying a long research into myelopathic albumosuria. His writings bore evidence both of literary taste and of the painstaking care that characterised his work as a whole. He married in 1904 Rose Mary, daughter of T. R. Glynn, F.C.R.P. He died at Mold in North Wales, where he had lived in retirement.
