London Warming and Ventilating Co Ltd., of 20 Newman Street, Oxford Street, W.1.

Manufactured stoves to Gurney's Patent. This type of stove was extensively used to heat a wide variety of buildings, often using coke as fuel. The stove's most interesting feature is the use of external ribs to increase the surface area of the stove available for heat transfer. A number of these stoves are still in use to this day, in the cathedrals of Ely, Durham, Hereford, Worcester and Peterborough, converted to burn gas.
