History Writer Limited

Freeman Grattan Holdings

Grattan, Home Shopping for 100 Years was published in July 2012 and formed the centre piece of the company's centenary celebrations.

History Writer did a thorough job researching our archive. The finished book captured the character of the company and also its pivotal role in the development of the mail order business in the UK.

Silver Cross

History Writer received its first book commission from Silver Cross, the Yorkshire pram manufacturer. For over 130 years, Silver Cross has manufactured classic coach built prams. The story of how the company started in a backstreet of Leeds and grew to become a world leader is recounted in this elegant hardback book. You can see some of the press coverage of the book here.

I have been delighted with the hard work, keen imagination, and dedication to the Silver Cross book project. The final product has exceeded all expectations and is both a great history of our brand and also a superb marketing tool.

— Alan Halsall, Chairman
