Welcome to RootsChat!


There is information about the companies, well the one I searched for on Google.  F Porter and Sons.  Not sure if the UK is like NZ in having a register of companies that is publicly searchable.  if so there is lots of information on these.

I am not sure that companies kept wages/salaries info about employees for any more than the requirement to keep them for tax purposes - 7 years.

Welcome to Rootschat

You haven't given any dates but I suspect you are referring to companies in business in the 1900's.

If so - it is most unlikely that any who may still be trading would keep records from that far back

Hi thank you for the replies and I understand there probably won't be many employers records I was just curios as to what the business was of these companies I found the information on the 1921 census

Hi Elaine

Some details here on J Lyons & Co https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._Lyons_and_Co.

Employment records are always tricky to find  :-\

My late neighbour was born 1920 & worked for Lyons as did his father & grandfather.  He was named Montague after Montague Gluckstein

Grace's Guide is a useful source for this sort of enquiry.

The companies are in Liverpool and are H and C Graveson ...

Could it perhaps be H. and C. Grayson ? If so, see here ...
