Comments:
William H Grant had a brother, Joseph Grant, who was also employed within the company. William was born in 1858, and died in December 1931. Joseph was born c. 1865 and died in January 1932.
Joseph had a son, Joseph Grant Junior, also employed in the company.
As the card above however was issued in circa 1905, it is more than likely the " Mr and Mrs J. Grant " was the father.
