Comben Homes was a large British Housebuilder.

History[edit]

The company was founded in 1907 by James White Comben and William Henry Wakeling as Comben & Wakeling and was incorporated as a private company in 1924.[1] In 1972 it bought Ryedale Homes from Duncan Davidson for £1m[2] and changed its name to Comben Group and subsequently traded as Comben Homes.[3] It was acquired by Trafalgar House and integrated in its Ideal Homes housebuilding business in 1984.[4]
