Please can someone identify this hallmark?

Hello,
Please could someone identify this hallmark.
It’s depicted on each of a set of 12 dinner forks owned by my parents. They were my grandmother’s and we’d be really interested to know their origin.
Hope someone can help and “Thank You” in anticipation.
Best regards to all.

Strictly speaking this is a trademark rather than a hallmark. It shows that the forks are electroplate (EP in Old English script) and were made by Philip Ashberry & Sons of Sheffield. The A shows the plating quality (not as good as A1, but better than B1, B, etc).

Thank you so much for your prompt reply.
Mystery solved!
I’ve copied your reply for my parents and will see if there’s any info on the stated makers.
Thank you again.
Best regards,
Duncan
