Over 85 Years Industry Experience


Rossells was founded by Sydney Rossell. Emigrating from Canada, he drew on his existing experience in the locksmith trade to support his family in the UK. The business began life in a small shop located on Waterloo Street in Leicester.


Our History

Rossells has a very proud history, serving the communities across Leicester for over 90 years.  Our story is one of family ownership and entrepreneurial spirit, combined with a dedication to our customer service and the work we do has ensured our continued growth over 90 years in business.  


Sydney’s two sons joined the thriving family business, expanding the outside locksmith work, and increasing the services offered at the Waterloo Street shop.



Following the decision by Leicester City Council to include Waterloo Street in the program to create an inner city ring road, all of the shops located on Waterloo Street were demolished and with the two sons taking the lead, Rossells was forced to establish a new home at 101 London Road.



Following on from the retirement of the Rossells sons, the business ownership changed to family friends in the 90’s, and Rossells became a Limited Company and registered under the name of Rossells Locksmiths Ltd.



Rossells left its historic home of London Road for a brand new larger premises bringing together its Warehouse, Trade Counter, Workshops and Offices. To better represent the company’s portfolio of services and products, the company name was changed to Rossells Security Ltd.
