News: The modern name of Kent is derived from the Brythonic word kantos meaning "rim" or "border", or possibly from a homonymous word kanto "horn, hook"

Try Trumans Brewery, West Street Gravesend,  which was a big local brewery about that time.

There were certainly several cement works in the area from the early 1880s.
Cement was exported in wooden casks until the advent of tin drums and paper sacks.
Other factories in Gravesend produced paper, tyres and electric power cables in the 20 century.

Hi there

Could anyone tell me if there were factories in Gravesend 1912 ish apart from the cement works,,,,was there a Frys Chocolate distributor or anywhere that would need a coopers labourer?? I`m trying to unravel some family myths to get to the bottom of what happened to 2 people after the death of their daughter.
