who were the Pinners?[edit]

Was there also once a "Worshipful Company of Pinners?" Do/did they exist under a different name?--something to do with pin-making or needle work, etc, I gather. There was a Pinner's Hall, which I always assumed was connected to one of the livery company's, but perhaps I'm wrong. Anyone know? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.167.69.46 (talk) 17:10, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

There was a "Pinmaker's Company" - hence "Pinner's Hall" on Old Broad Street - but they ceased to be in about 1800. It would be good if someone could add information on them and the other 'deceased' livery companies to this article. -- Huwbwici (talk) 20:40, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

I know it is a blog but [1] provides some information. Jackiespeel (talk) 19:30, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

[2] adds some information and may be more appropriate for WP. Jackiespeel (talk) 19:32, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Proposed merge with Liveryman[edit]

It doesn't feel like there's quite enough content on the linked page to warrant a full article, and given it's relation to Livery companies, could be included as a section within that page Topperfalkon (talk) 12:35, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

  • Support - The livery companies article has very little information on the actual activities and rights of members. Merging in this article would make for more comprehensive coverage of the subject in a single article. Ibadibam (talk) 23:26, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

Guild of Human Resource Professionals[edit]

The current name of the organisation - website [3] is 'The Guild of Human Resource Professionals' but on the 'drop-down list' have 'HR Practitioners.' Can this be resolved. Jackiespeel (talk) 18:41, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

Basic details here [4] - develop here or on that wiki as appropriate. Jackiespeel (talk) 16:45, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

Defunct Livery Companies[edit]

A (possibly partial) list can be found here [5]: most have few traces on the web, and some are noted elsewhere on Wikipedia (eg Fullers and Shearmen on the Worshipful Company of Clothworkers page). Jackiespeel (talk) 19:39, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Guild of Investment Managers[edit]

There are a bare handful of mentions on the internet - it appears to be in the planning stage at present and may require some time to be sufficiently notable for Wikipedia. Jackiespeel (talk) 18:18, 14 June 2017 (UTC)
