Hi Brooke to bring it up to date, David Rooney who was (is?) the curator of
the time gallery at Greenwich wrote a book on on the Belevilles, father and
daughter and their service to London clock repair shops . It is titled
''Ruth Belville: The Greenwich Time Lady'' and published by the National
Maritime Museum, Greenwich. ISBN 978-0-948065-97-2
It covers 1795 to 1943

I met David at an NPL Time and Frequency Club meeting and was able to put
him in contact with a retired P.O.Research engineer who was resposible for
thr UK speaking Clock development. This also enabled him to gain provenance
for a couple of early quartz clocks from the late 1930s.
