W Tilbury and Sons were Guildford coal merchants from the first Decade of the 20th century. The business was run by William James Tilbury, who was born in 1887, but named the business as “W Tilbury and Sons” after his father also named William.

Their Private Owner wagon was built by R Y Pickering & Co Ltd of Wishaw, North Lanarkshire in Scotland and registered with the London & South Western Railway, Registration No. 1712 in 1910 and its painting date is listed as being 21st March 1910. 

It is not clear how long the business continued after the early passing of William James, aged 36 in 1923.
