This firm petitioned for the wind-up of Leeswood Main Coal, Cannel & Oil Co. Ltd. The relationship between the two companies is unclear, although they operated on adjacent sites at Hope Station.



Edwin Middleton previously (?) traded as the firm of Edwin Middleton, and Benjamin Fawcett Glover seems likely to have been associated with the firm of W.W. Glover & Co, both concerns operating from Hope Oil Works.
