My mother called me this morning, she had stumbled upon your post quite by accident. I'm the person you are looking for.
Henry Woodmansey is my great grandfather. The clock that you have is a later one as it stated " &sons". I think you will find that the mechanism was made in Holland rather than Doncaster in the later clocks. The shop where they were made is now a Hill Samuel and their own regulator clock is still in the basement. Woodmansey made some fabulous clocks for public buildings with highly decorative enamel faces. There is one in the Library at what was Doncatsre Grammar school, another was in the first class waiting room on York station. The best example was at York racecourse.(*)
