Hincks and Burnell (originally Hinchliffe, Hincks and Burnell) were a firm of stained glass designers and manufacturers based in Nottingham in the early years of the 20th century.


Makers mark of Hincks and Burnell

The company produced stained glass windows in the East Midlands from around the mid 1920s. Their makers mark was a crown, with HHB Nottm. When Hinchcliffe left the firm in 1935, the company was renamed Hincks and Burnell and the makers mark was changed to a crown with H&B Nottm.

Originally based at 23 Heathcote Street in Nottingham,[1] the company moved in 1932 to Hermit Street in Sneinton, Nottingham.[2] where it stayed until after 1941. In the 1950 Hincks and Burnell was formally dissolved,[3] and Horace Hincks continued on his own based at 50 High Pavement, Nottingham.
