Hi

I am trying to find as much information as possible about a company called
F Parramore & Sons, I think it was formed in 1924 at Smith Street,
Sheffield S35 1WQ.

If anyone has any information on this regarding family, F Parramore and his sons it would be much appreciated.

Many thanks

Maggie

Paramores was in Chapeltown, near the centre. They made hand tools. I think they closed around 15 years ago but not sure.

I'm the match day secretary of the football club and we currently reside in Worksop, known as Worksop Parramore Football Club. We play in Northern Counties East Division One where we just finished 3rd.

We've gone through some changes in recent history. The Chairman and Vice Chairman, Pete Whitehead and Max Ross, have been trying to build the club into a force within the region. To do this we changed our name to Sheffield Parramore in 2010 to try and get more coverage from the Sheffield Star.

An opportunity came where we could purchase Sandy Lane in Worksop (Worksop Town's old ground), so we re-located and re-branded again to Worksop Parramore (and invited Worksop Town back to ground share with us).

Our history is limited on the origins of the club, who formed it exactly, where was it formed, who were the first players, early matches etc etc? We're keen on knowing as much about the Parramore family as we can too, after all, we wouldn't be here if it wasn't for them.

I used to work albeit briefly at Parramore's on Smith St Chapeltown as a young girl, I worked in the Core Shop at the side of the Foundry making the cores out of sand which was heated up in machines in moulds which were baked then they were used in the foundry
