The table above contains an alphabetical list of plants that have made clinker since 1895. Plants with rotary kilns are in bold. The list is believed to be complete. The table contains links to descriptions of the individual plants. As of 28 August 2011 all these descriptions are in place, although many are still significantly deficient. Please contact me with any relevant information or corrections. I am particularly interested in firmer dates and statistics, pictures and plans. The list also includes a few articles on cement companies, but only where they operated five of more plants.
Naming conventions are always arbitrary. In this website, plants are given the name by which they were identified by their owners, with precedence to the most recent. Where there are two or more plants of the same name, a bracketed locality is added. Other names commonly used are included in this list, but elsewhere only the "official" name is used.
The table gives the name of the plant, its clinker production operating dates, and the x- and y-values of its 1 metre British Grid Reference. Irish Grid values (ITM) are italicised.
