Gledhill and Roberts, Limited
Gledhill & Roberts Ltd. were bobbin makers based at Honley.
The firm was in existence by the 1860s as they were one of a number of local firms who exhibited at the Honley Industrial Exhibition of September 1866.
The firm was still in existence in 1914, when it was named as a "bobbin and shuttle manufacturer" in the Whitaker's Red Book of Commerce or Who's Who in Business.
