In 1914 Henker and Mohune were in the 'automatic mechanics' business, operating from Church Road (see our 1914 searchable directory).

The 1911 census lists William Henker as a 'skin dresser' at the slaughter house, Mountain Ash, and Francis Mohune as an automatic machines commercial traveller. William, it seems, was also a watchmaker.
