Default Mystery grams and radios

Went to pick up a fifties Ekco radio today and the lady showed me her late husband's collection of radios, record players and grams, literally dozens. Sadly many are affected by damp and worm. The grams are stacked and the lighting very poor. Can anybody identify these grams? Too heavy for me to shift. I got the 30s Pye radio, but cant trace the model.

The one at the top of picture 4 looks like a Ferguson 627U.

The table radio is a Pye from the 30s. T something or other.

Photo#2 looks like a Dynatron, photo#3 is a most excellent Dynatron Valved Stereogram, photo#4 Might be a mid-1950s Bush, photo#5 bottom might be an early 1950s HMV - but what's standing on it (looks interesting) I can't tell.

Without checking exact models it's possible that there might be some value in some of those grams, so be very careful if you get any PMs asking for the persons details.

I thought the Dynatron may have been a RG25A but I think they had the radio dial & controls mounted horizontally under the lift up lid rather than behind a dropdown flap on the front, possibly the same chassis though.
