Flockton and Tomkins

Recommended Posts

I have a friend at work who I have been helping research her family tree and it turns out her grandfather has a connection with this company. I have managed to trace Flockton and Tompkins to the Newhall Steel works on Burgess Road behind Christ Church, Attercliffe. As far as I know they went out of business in the mid 1950's. On most maps the steel works is just marked as "Newhall Steel Works" but presumably a number of small companies occupied these works. She also has a small spring knife made by this company which is marked with the company logo, a cat standing upright wearing a top hat.

Does anyone know anything about this company, what they made? years they were in business? or any other details.

Managed to retrieve your picture of these razors from eBay

I have also posted your eBay entry in the "Sheffield items being sold on eBay" section, - could get you a few extra bids ;-)
