Retiring After 50 years

Home » Newsroom » Retiring After 50 years

One of the great characters of UK Auctioneering has finally decided to hang up his gavel — but not completely, as Roy Waller, after over 50 years at Chelford, will continue to take part in some Machinery sales at Chelford, and continue to be involved in sales of agricultural and contractors plant and machinery held by Wright Marshall Ltd.

Roy joined Frank Marshall and Company as a young lad in 1966 on a full time basis, having previously worked on market days, unloading calves, sheep, etc.

The late Frank Marshall first persuaded, and then allowed, Roy to sell his first calf a year or two later, since when he has become one of the best known auctioneers in the country.

For many years he presided over the largest calf market each week at Chelford, and has built the monthly Chelford Machinery Sale into one of the largest in the region.

In addition, he helped diversify the business by introducing sales of vehicles, has also been involved in developing sales of contractors, plant and machinery over a wide area, and in recent years, has taken charge of the weekly sales of vegetables, potatoes, eggs etc to great success.
