Hi I have a collection of cutlery but am unsure what the markings mean.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

It means it's not silver. Silverite was a trade name for a base metal alloy used by William Page & Co of Birmingham (see http://www.silvercollection.it/electroplatesilverNOPtre.html#PAG1). You may find other relevant electroplate and non-silver manufacturers' marks there. Remember, if you want a firm identification from us, that pictures are essential.
