Charles James Parker; ? 1890s-? 1925; butcher; Cromer, Norfolk

  • GB/153/NM/965
  • Corporate body
  • ? 1890s-? 1925

The following few details are gathered from trade directories. C.J. Parker of 6 Bond Street, Cromer appears to have established his business at some point between 1892 and 1896. He stayed at this address throughout his career, although, by 1912, he had expanded to include an outlet in Church Street. By 1922, Parker had retired but the business carried on under the title of Parker and Sons at the Bond Street address. Its' future was short-lived thereafter, however; no advert for this business was carried by the 1925 directory, nor do the Parkers appear in the trade section for the county as a whole.
