Burford (presumably H. G. Burford and Co) supplied over 70 small buses to Great Western Railway for a time. These were later converted to GWR goods vehicles.

National Omnibus and Transport Co were also customers of Burford.

H. G. Burford was a director of the National Omnibus and Transport and had also founded Milnes-Daimler.

Burford went into liquidation in the mid 1920s.

  • Plymouth Corporation had a fleet of Burfords by the late 1920s. All were B-types 2.5 ton/2,540kg with 20 seats and were one-man operated.
