Notes

J.G. Groves was a manufacturer based at Enterprise Works in Sheffield. The Enterprise Works was inhabited by a number of different tradesmen and manufacturers. The main tenant of the works was a company called THE ROCKINGHAM PLATE & CUTLERY COMPANY which was owned by two brothers called Cyril & Percy Potter. The Works were compulsory purchased by the council in the late fifties, in order to build the St Mary’s ring, but were not demolished until the late sixties
