Hi, Can anyone kindly look up in Newspapers in FMP please?

I am looking for any info on Paget Prize Plate Co. Watford. Later became 'Apm/Apem' in c1920 - 1932.

It eventually became part of Ilford - which still makes film for cameras etc...…

Any info considered!

Also anything mentioned on Paget House & Paget Cottage, Watford.

Helpers please see this post for more info on names that might be worth looking at, I've added census info on other post but don't have access to newspapers at the moment :-)

There are a few mentions in newspapers on Findmypast, mostly about an issue of shares in quite a few companies that seem to be amalgamating.

There is one longish article in the Western Morning News on February 11th, 1921.

I can't remember how to download it so that I can send it in pm to you, but if no one else offers to help I will get my son to do it and send it to you later tonight when he's back from work.
