Administrative / Biographical History

These correspondence files originate from Bennett and Sayer, a Derbyshire-based firm based at Derby which manufactured metal clay-working equipment. Correspondence files were distributed to other record offices, and these files relate to business which Bennett and Sayer conducted with Doncaster-based brick manufacturers and other local firms.

Yorkshire Amalgamated Products Limited: this firm was involved in brickmaking, lime works, and quarries. Its head offices were at 27 Waterdale, Doncaster, until 1932 when they were moved to North Bridge Road.

Subsidiary companies of Yorkshire Amalgamated Products Limited: these brickmaking companies were apparently subsidiaries of Yorkshire Amalgamated Products Limited and shared the same address at Waterdale and later at North Bridge Road, Doncaster.
