1926 March. Mr F. Knott one of the founders of the firm, decided to retire from active practice after thirty-four years' of continuous service with the company. Although not taking any active part in the details of the business, but retained a financial interest in it and continued to take an advisory part in its affairs. Mr E. G. Walker of Westminster who had co-operated with Maxted and Knott on various occasions during the past seven years in connection with some of the works which the firm had carried out, both in the UK and abroad, joined the company on the retirement of Mr. Knott. His own practice was incorporated with that of the firm. Maxted and Knott continued to occupy their present temporary head offices at Dunstable and had their registered London offices at 23, Queen Anne's-gate, Westminster, as heretofore. [1]

1926 June. Their offices at Dunstable, Beds. and 23, Queen Anne's Gate, Westminster, were closed on June 9th. They conducted business hereafter from 82, Victoria-street, London, S.W.I.[2]
