Jasper Redfern was a Sheffield-based optician who in 1898 was also offering photographic supplies and instruction; Röntgen rays (X-Rays); and exhibitions of the Lumière Cinématographe; for which he was one of a number of agents in Britain at this time.

He remained in the local film business for another 10 years before devoting himself wholly to optical and medical work. He engaged in research into X-rays and the treatment of cancers at the Christie Hospital, Manchester; and was eventually to die of cancer himself brought on by radiation poisoning. His collection of motion picture memorabilia is now at the National Science and Media Museum.
