S. William Coe & Co.Ltd.

I would be grateful if anyone can confirm the funnel colours used in the latter years.

I know that they had a deep blue base white band with red C but not sure if the top was black or the same deep blue stained with smoke.

I have discovered from Companies House records that the title has been used twice but Lloyd's information does not concur so I'm also trying to fathom out those conflicts of information if anyone can throw any light.

S. William Coe & Company Ltd. (1st use)

Company Number: 332716
Incorporation Date: Around 1935
Liquidated: 1944
Company Status: Dissolved No records available.
8.3.1944: W.J.Ireland appointed as Liquidator per London Gazette “Notice of Liquidation”

(1935 –1944)
(William J. Ireland, manager)
Liquidated 1944

Between 1944 and 1954 this company title did not exist according to Companies House records as quoted here with two different company numbers.

Lloyd’s Confidential Index 1946 edition states on the other hand that the original company was restructured rather than liquidated and indeed Lloyd’s Register of Shipping made no change of S. W. Coe vessel ownership in that period.

I personally would regard Companies House as the correct version.

S. William Coe & Company Ltd. (2nd use)

Company Number: 547441
Incorporation Date: Around 1954
Company Status: Dissolved - 1980

(1954 - 1955).
(Cyril G. Abel, Managing Director)
(William J. Ireland, Director)

(1955 - 1980)
(within the Booker Group)

1980 Company was dissolved.
