E.Lazenby and Son
Walter Lazenby (c1835-1910), was a sauce and pickle manufacturer. He was the head of the long established firm of wine merchants, which traded as E. Lazenby and Sons. What had been a small business employing 20 to 40 employees expanded under his direction to become a large factory in Bermondsey making bottled sauces and employing several hundreds.
The company was absorbed into Crosse and Blackwell empire in the 1920s.
