Does anyone have any further information about arnolds time at Russells, andae there any Russells pianos in sussex please

There are lots of surviving "George Russell" pianos, but many were made by Cramers in the 1900s, who took over the name. I couldn't tell you where to find one in Sussex, but perhaps a Sussex tuner may answer.
Hi I have just re-found this site, and didn't recall actually leaving a message at that stage, but thank you for your informatiion.
Yes I am aware of the items on adelgigs, and the notes I am referring to when posting this request are from their site, and as far as I am aware it was compiled by them, certainly not me. I wonder where they got there information from.
Another innteresting connection is that in 1897 a family member EDMUND HENRY GIGNEY, applied for a patent No 17803 for the TRAANSCRIPTION MECHANISM FOR PIANO FORTE AND OTHER KEYBOARD INSTRUMENTS.
Appareently it was published in 1897 , by HMSO, SKU 171934 and moden day reprints come up on Ebay selling for £40 plus. Do you have any knowledge of that publication
