NATIONAL TIME RECORDERS FACTORY BELL TIMER AND CLOCK, 1950's
It would appear that although Blick became the main user of National Time Recorders, NTR continued to supply recorders under their own name , an instruction book (not in the museum's possession) which gives Cray Avenue, St Mary Cray, Kent, as the Factory and head office address and shows that the company at that time had branch offices and local service departments in London, Birmingham, Bristol, Dublin, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle and Sheffield. The booklet is unfortunately undated but the telephone number for the London office was 01-928 6641.

- These were always called "Programmers" when I was assembling them at St. Mary Cray up to 1963

- I'm sorry that I can't give any direct information about the NTR device. However, the St. Mary Cray address was also once the location of STC, Kolster Brande and Morphy Richards. Was there any connection between NTR and any of these once famous Companies? As an aside, I can remember the Morphy Richards factory closing down in the early 1970's; I can remember seeing all the employees leaving for the last time (1,500 or so) as I travelled past on the bus on my way to school!
