It was one of those short-lived companies that started after the Second World War. He operated as a sole trader until 1953 when he became a Limited Company. The company ceased trading on the 25th of October 1955.
Their last meeting was on the 28th of December 1961 and Seaton Grant Potteries Limited was removed from the list of companies in 1963. Geoffrey is listed as a “manufacturer” on the Electoral Roll. He is later recorded as a “consultant”, living in an affluent northern suburb of Melbourne. .
