This company was established at the Grosvenor Works in King Street, Fenton, in about 1866, succeeding Jackson & Brown (c.1864).
In 1909 the address was changed to the Grosvenor Works, Gregory Street, Longton. The firm became a limited liability company in 1928, although 'Ltd" was not always added to marks.
The trade name 'Grosvenor China' was widely used.
