NOTES: A third of the City's buildings were destroyed by aerial attack between September 1940 and March 1945. This, the second hall built for this livery company, was severely bomb damaged during an air raid on the 10th May 1941. A new hall was commissioned in 1956, designed by Austen Hall and built by Dove Brothers within the surviving Victorian walls, and opened in 1960.
