I emailed Atkin,Grant&Lang yesterday to see if they had the Lancaster records. They did not, so I am left wondering who does have them. Anyone have any idea? Thanks, Sandlapper

Hello sandlapper, A few years ago records/information was held by Ronald Wharton in the UK. (website was Bunduki or similar). I don't know if this is still the case, but worth a look. Small fee for copy of ledger etc. I have used this service but no longer have contact details.Regards, Mr w martin

They had the records as of two years ago. They will draft a letter on their letterhead with the details they have in the Lancaster records. I emailed about a possible purchase asking for a few specifics with the intention of ordering a letter if the sale went through. They sent what I asked for in a very reasonable amount of time via email but the sale never materialized. Lancasters are under valued in today’s market but they were among the more expensive in their day.

Good luck.

I believe Ron Wharton has passed on but his wife still has the records. A friend of mine has been in contact with her recently. The next time I talk to him I will see if I can get her contact info for you.

I saw the Lancaster records many years ago and they did not seem very comprehensive .

Have you searched Griffin and Howe’s web site? They apparently imported guns and have some info in their records. Bob Beach, who I believe posts on this site, was and may still be in retirement their historian. He copied ledger information for me on a Lancaster SLE some time ago.
