Ascot Shipping Co Ltd

I am trying to find out the history of the Ascot shipping Co Ltd. which was also known as the Aviation Shipping Company and possibly managed by N.W Purvis. I know in the 1950's they had some war time ships and also had an ex Hain Nourse ship. All started with the prefix Avis***** such as Avisbank, Avisglen & Avistone but I cant find anything about the company. Can anybody help?

We at BISC(ore) Ltd; had Avisvale and I think Avisfaith on charter in late 50's, the Avisvale came off charter on the Tees about 1961-62 and on handover we found about 200 tons of iron ore in her bilges.
Yes Purvis Shipping were Managers...Mr Pond (or was it Mr Poole?) I seem to remember.

Brilliant, thank you all for replying. I know have my questions answered. I did not know about the bulk carriers so will now spend the next few evenings trying to find photos and information about them. Cheers and thanks once again.

Cheers Ted for the info,
I found 5 good photos of the Alexander T Wood on www.photoship.co.uk. One has a funnel with a large W on. Could this be the funnel of Westriver do you think? I shall check all details on a Lloyd register now you have given me some years to work on. Thanks again Dave
