The original premises were in the city of London, in the Ward of Cripplegate Without, the site of the Barbican today. As the business expanded it was necessary to move to larger premises, although it still remained in the Paper Street area of EC1.

Frederick Henry Brundle had eight children in all and the eldest son, Frank Walter, assumed control of the company in the 1920's and business continued to flourish.

 

Like his father before him, Frank took an active part in the civic affairs of the City of London and both were invited to 'stand in line' for Lord Mayor, but for business reasons they both declined. However, Frank was later awarded the CBE for his chairmanship of the Civil Defence in the City, before and during the second world war.

During this period the Paper Street premises were completely destroyed in the blitz of 1940 and the company was forced to relocate to the borders of Islington and Hackney where the firm remained until 1998.

Frederick Frank Brundle, representing the third generation of the family, entered the business in 1935 after spending six months in Belgium at a steel and wire nail works. The war years interrupted his career in the company and he rejoined later in partnership with Charles Henry, Frank's youngest brother. Charles retired in 1960 and Frederick in 1984 when his son Richard assumed sole control.
