B&D Safe opening attended a job for the Sussex Police force. We were required to open this Samuel withers safe for them.
The Withers family are well known for safe manufacture. They lived and worked in the Midlands – West Bromwich to be precise. Samuel was one of nine Withers children born to George and Mary Withers and of the nine, three became safe makers. Samuel, Thomas and the lesser successful Jesse withers. Jim Evans, the Great Great Grandson of Samuel Wither’s eldest sister Rebecca hasn’t written an interesting piece about the Withers safe making history which you can read about here.
