Lou and Les Ephgrave both learnt their trade at Claud Butlers. When they were at Butlers Stuart Purves was the works manager. Stuart Purves ( Stuarts) left Butlers in about 1948 to start his own business and the Ephgraves not long after. The Ephgraves were united with Stuart Purves later on when Stuart became the works manager at Ephgrave's Avely works.
