Wardens and Guardians



Assay Office Birmingham is not controlled by the trade – unlike the older assay offices and halls which were originally administered by the Guilds – but by a board of 30 Wardens and Guardians of the Standard of Wrought Plate in Birmingham, of whom not more than nine or less than six may be connected with the trade. Below is a list of Guardians and Wardens of Assay Office Birmingham:
