Grindall's of Wem

In 1931 Joesph Henry Grindall (J H Grindall) purchased the business from his Brother In Law Vivian Wellings. Soon after the 2nd world war ended his sons Jabez and Vivian joined him, it became the family business and was renamed J H Grindall & Sons which was located in the High Street, Wem.

Joesph Henry Grindall passed away in 1973 and Jabez and Vivian continued to run the business until 1988 when Mr Alan Painter of Frank Painter & Sons bought the business from them. Vivian continued to run the office for a number of years until he retired and the office has since relocated to Aston Street, it now bears the name Grindall's Of Wem.

Vivian Grindall passed away in 2005 and Jabez Grindall in 2010.
