Our History
Our History
Wigram & Ware has been providing quality eye care to the many residents of King's Lynn and West Norfolk for nearly a century.

The company was founded in 1920 but there had been a practice in King's Lynn, run by Mr Francis Wigram since 1912, when the Wigram family acquired an opticians' business from Charles Hyman who had been practising in King's Lynn High Street and Cambridge for a number of years earlier. 

Mr Francis Wigram (nephew of the founder) was appointed Chairman and Chief Executive in the 1950's and ran the business until it was sold in 1989 to Mr Peter Hutchinson and Mr Kevin Smith. It was during this partnership that the Dersingham branch opened in 2003, and the King's Lynn practice moved to its current location in Blackfriars Street in 2006. The present owners are Mrs Sarah Baldock, Mrs Linda Vernon-wood and Mr Imran Hakim, following Mr Peter Hutchinson's retirement in 2012 and Kevin Smith's retirement in November 2018.
