I would like to thank all our customers for their custom and loyalty over the years, without you we would not have been able to run such a successful business for so long. We have genuinely been overwhelmed by the large number of kind comments and messages regarding the standard and quality of our service. I also must add my praise to the wonderful team we have, most having been here for over 40 years, it's a sad time to say goodbye. May I wish all of you continued pleasure in this marvellous hobby of ours.

Yours sincerely,

Arthur Ryan

Stamps of Great Britain

Arthur Ryan & Co (Richmond) has ceased trading from 1st November 2019.

All orders received before this date will be processed and despatched as soon as possible. Due to the shear volume of orders received in September/October, please allow at least 21-28 days for receipt.

Arthur Ryan & Co has been sold to Brian Bayford Stamps Ltd which will take effect from 1st November 2019. Some of you may have dealt with Brian, but for those who have not (and many of you have asked us to recommend another source of supply) BB Stamps wins our vote by a country mile.

They issue a fine glossy price list that covers just about everything from Queen Victoria through to the latest new issues. In addition, we have to say that their website has to be seen to be believed, they have an incredible range of material and without bias it's the best on the planet.

Below is a link to their website and I'm sure they would be delighted to send a copy of their price list on request


Please do not contact BB Stamps for any enquiries relating to orders placed prior to 1st November 2019 as they will not be able to assist you. Our Richmond office will continue to remain open until all outstanding orders are processed and despatched.
