A Cornish bakery is trying to piece together part of its company history by tracking down former workers.

Redruth-based Furniss wants to trace 100 years of missing history at the firm, which master baker John Cooper Furniss set up in the late 1880s.

It started out as a Truro teashop and made fairings, gingerbread, shortbread and oat crunchies but went into administration earlier this year, leaving only 20 years of company records.

Proper Cornish Food Company bought the biscuit factory and is keen to track down people who worked for Furniss as far back as the 1930s-40s in a bid to discover the fate of the company’s founder.
