Richards family
« on: Tuesday 30 January 18 13:28 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for information about William Richards and sons, Monumental Masons of Brockley and Verdant lane Hither green, South London. They were in business at Brockley from the 1800's to 1945 and later until the partnership was ended in 1952.
Any related info. about this family would be appreciated.
John.

William's father's occupation was a Delivery Foreman, Wharfingers. Therefore it would appear that William Richards born c. 1840 would be the founder of William Richards and Sons.

Thank you JJ for the information.
I have most of this from the census returns.
May I ask your interest in the Richards family.
My mother was a Richards and is related to the
people in your info.
Do you have anything related to their business?
Is there anything I can sen that might interest you?
John.

Hi John,

I'm not related to the Richards family.

As yet I've not found anything relating to their business but will have another look as I now presume you are more interested in the actual business rather than details regarding the family.
