Clarendon Film Company

The Clarendon Film Company was a British film studio founded by Percy Stow and Henry Vassal Lawley.[1][2]

The studio was founded in 1904 in Croydon, primarily as a movie camera equipment company, and began to make short films as a side-line. It was named for its original location off Clarendon road, and later moved to Limes Road.[3][4]
