Acorn Locksmiths was started in 1983 by it’s current owner Mr Norm Axford.

The name Acorn Locksmiths was decided on because of a number of factors Including the saying:

“From little Acorns, big oak trees grow”


So far there has been a great deal of success with this attitude. From starting in a garage at home, we now employ 6 team members and have 3 service vehicles.

Starting as a sole trader we changed to a proprietary limited company in 1995.

A commitment to training has meant that we have employed more than 10 apprentices from time to time.

Improvements and successes have been made possible by only working for the best clients. This has led to a number of movements in premises, finally locating in our own premises at 57 Helen Street Sefton in June 2000.

  • To provide an excellent service to our clients
