Hamilton, Endbutt Lane, Coalman

Does anyone remember having their coal delivered by Frank (Hamilton) and Alf. Nellie Hamilton, used to answer the telephone. Nellie was my Great Aunt and Godmother. The coal business, Rainfords of Endbutt Lane and had been started by my Great Grandfather, Joseph Rainford. Any recollections would be much appreciated.
