    Hope this is of help
    This has been my experience with H&H as well. Some of the old firms are great about these types of inquiries - Rigby, Watson Bros, Westley Richards but H&H isn't one of them. i suspect there are records but they don't want to be bothered.

    A cursory google search reveals numerous references to H&H sales ledgers and to photos of pages, extracts etc.; some of which suggest records from the 1880s to at least 1914. Perhaps the service is available, but only to those who pay enough, often enough?
