Hello again, due to recent work and holiday committments, I have been off the scene recently, however, I do have a few posts waiting in the wings including a couple of International ones. ;)

George Barnsley & Son - I know this place has been hammered a few times recently but while I was in the area, I thought it was worth the effort and the lone visit was great. :)

George Barnsley and Sons Ltd. was founded 1836, George Barnsley was Master Cutler in 1883 and by 1852 they had increased there product range to include steel files, shoe and butchers knives.

They are listed in 1944 as manufactures of files and blades shoe knives and leather workers tools. In the 1948 listing the business had become George Barnsley and Son Ltd

George Barnsley died at his home at No 30 Collegiate Crescent on 30th March 1958, he lived there with his wife Mabel and mother-in-law Elizabeth.

He had a long army career, joining up in 1896 and serving in the Boer war and two world wars. Colonel Barnsley played a leading part in the development of the Army Cadet Force in Sheffield. He Died Aged 83.

As usual, pre-apologies for the pic heavy content :rolleyes:
