Looking for info on White & Willows, Ltd.

Hello! My name is Lynn and I live in the U.S. I'm looking for information on a fishing company out of Grimsby, UK called "White & Willows, Ltd." or "White & Willows Steam Fishing Co.". I believe they were located on Henderson Street. I know the name of four ships owned by them (but I'm sure there were more): The Concord, The Vesper, The War Duke, and The Nellie Bruce, which sunk in 1916. My great grandfather (White) was an owner, and I'd love to learn more about the company. Specifically, I'd like to know if any of their ships were requisitioned during WWII. Thanks!

Welcome...I am assuming that you have read all the threads on White & Willows on Google? Quite a lot of information there.
