There is a nice, inexpensive, little book (See site booklist)
'EPNS Electroplated Nickel Silver,Old Sheffield Plate and Close Plate makers' marks'
by George Mappin
ISBN 0-572-02419-3
published by Foulsham
Not comprehensive, but a really good start on the subject that will have most of the makers you are looking for from England.
When stumped... ask the forum!!
Have Fun!! smile
