Welcome to Grace's Guide

Grace's Guide is the leading source of historical information on industry and manufacturing in the UK. The scope is gradually being extended to include non-UK businesses and biographies. Additions are being made to the information daily by a team of volunteers who give freely of their time and expertise.


We always need early magazines, books, directories, photographs etc. to help with this project and your contributions are always welcome. Our contact details are here.

We welcome Contributors with a specialist knowledge of industrial subjects that they can share with others through Grace's Guide. Our contact details are here.

Grace’s Guide is a charity and its only source of income is from donations and sponsors. If you would like to support Grace’s Guide financially in any way please see our Support Grace's Guide page.
