Some history of the company according to Wikipedia:

W H Grindley was an English pottery company that made earthenware and ironstone tableware, including flow blue. The company was founded in 1880 by William Harry Grindley (b. 1859) of Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent.

The company was founded at the Newfield Pottery by Grindley and Alfred Meakin (connected to J. & G. Meakin company), but the partnership ended in 1884 and Grindley continued alone. It moved to the Woodland Pottery in 1891. William Harry Grindley died in 1926.

W H Grindley was taken over by Alfred Clough in 1960, and became known as Grindley of Stoke in 1978. The company bought Ceramix in 1980, and was itself bought by Federated Potteries in 1982 before being bought back by W H Grindley in 1988. The company went into receivership in 1991 and was taken over by Woodlands Pottery. Pattern books and records from 1880-1930 are in the Stoke-on-Trent City Archives.

Grindley Manufactured these dishes in 1954, which can be determined from the marks on the bottoms of the dishes.  There are 8 place settings, minus the cups and saucers.  For some reason they were  not with the set when I purchased it.   The place settings consist of dinner plate, lunch plate, side plate, dessert bowl,  and rimmed soup bowl (not shown).  The completer pieces consist of a turkey platter, smaller platter, covered casserole, cream and sugar, and vegetable bowl.  Wonderful condition overall save for a few utensil marks.

Will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antiques Market, 26 Mill St., Almonte, ON.  Price for all $150.oo.

PLEASE NOTE:  These dishes have been  SOLD!!!
