In 1929 H&G Simonds was granted the Royal Warrant as Brewers to His Majesty, King George the Fifth. It was again granted by King George 6th in 1940 and by Queen Elizabeth 2nd in 1955. The warrant continued to be held until the demise of H&G Simonds in 1960.

My grandfather Eric Simonds was President of the Royal Warrant Holders Association from 19** – 1935.
