Client and Visitor Testimonials

26 Nov 2012

We welcome all enquiries though our website, whether you have a question about the services we offer or you would like help tracing the history of a family heirloom.

We have had some wonderful feedback from people who we have helped recently and are excited to share them.

“That's fantastic, our bowl is not as old as we thought, but great to know the proper history of it. Thank you for all your work in resolving this for me”.

-          Rob Utton

“Thank you so much for that prompt and very helpful reply to my enquiry”

-          Allan Smith

“Many thanks for helping me with the identification of the piece of silver, after contacting the silversmith they are able to repair the piece for me”.

-          Eric Thirer

“Excellent, well done, on tracing the manufacturer of my piece of silver you have made my day! I find it fascinating that you can track down history through a stamp whoever thought of silver stamp marks is a genius. I realise the importance of stamping silver but you can retrace to the exact year and who made it”.

-          Paul Williams

We have also recently received some lovely feedback from attendees of our Tours and Talks.

“Thank you for such an excellent visit yesterday, you explained such a lot to us and the tour was fascinating. Thank you to all the staff and we give our very best wishes for the future. We were all most impressed with the diversification you have put in place with a view to the future and with the special feeling of companionship between everyone”.

-          Sue Hey, Huddersfield Branch NADFAS

“I wanted to write to you and thank you for an excellent visit to the Sheffield Assay Office for our NWR group last Thursday. Firstly you made us all feel so welcome and your presentation was first rate. The history of the assay offices is fascinating. What was also fascinating was going on to the “shop floor” and seeing how the whole process actually works. We all left with a great feeling of pride in our Sheffield heritage.

-          Rosemary Hannon, National Women’s Register

“Just a short note to thank you for our visit. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and was impressed with the professionalism and complexity of the operation. As well as the scope of work that you carry out. We wish you success and will gladly recommend the visit to others”.

-          Tim Marsh, Stumperlowe Probus Club

“On behalf of the whole of our group I wish to thank you for making our visit so interesting.  On our way home everyone was talking about it and saying how much they had enjoyed it and how informative it had been, both your presentation and the 'factory' tour. Thank you once again and please thank all the staff that took time to explain things to us”.

-          Elsie Walton, Wakefield & District Family History Society

“The visit to the Sheffield Assay Office proved a very enjoyable and educational morning. Many students had taken time off from work and those who could not were very much aggrieved. Once again thank you and your colleagues for your hospitality it was very much appreciated.”

-          Sue Hudson, Hillsborough College, Sheffield Silversmithing and Jewellery Course

Our next Tour and Talk will take place on Thursday the 24th of January from 10am until 12.30pm please contact us to book your place.
