John Bell & Croyden are proud to hold the Royal Warrant as Pharmacists to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and have held this accreditation since 1958. The Royal Warrant was originally granted on behalf of King George V in 1909. We were equally proud to hold The Royal Warrant to Her Majesty the Queen Mother until her death in 2002.
Royal Warrants are awarded only to individuals not organisations - therefore the current Warrant Holder is in fact Mr Alan Souter, Director & General Manager of John Bell & Croyden
The Royal Warrants provide the company with the right to display the Royal Coat of Arms of The Queen on its signage and promotional material but cannot provide details of the goods or services supplied to the Grantors of the Warrants.
The Royal Coat of Arms is used by the Queen in her capacity as monarch of the United Kingdom.
The arms comprise a shield which is quartered, depicting in the first and fourth quadrants the three passant guardant lions of England.
In the second quadrant is a rampant lion and double treasure flory-counterflory of Scotland.
In the third quadrant is a harp for Northern Ireland.
The crest (at the top) is a guardant lion wearing the imperial crown, sitting on another representation of that crown.
The dexter (left) supporter is a crowned English lion, the sinister (right) a Scottish unicorn.
The coat features the motto of English monarchs “Dieu et mon droit” (God and my right) and the motto of the Order of the Garter “Honi soit qui mal y pense” (shamed be he who thinks ill of it).
