Re: Definition of variants of the word dicing #unitedkingdom

As posted in an April 27 message, I'm writing an article about my family's
early years in Birmingham, England (and that of the mainly Ashkenazi Jews),
from the 1870's to the turn of the 20th century up to the 1920's. In an
audio tape a niece in B'ham sent me, my late father mentioned working for
"Dicer King[Dicerking?]," a company that did metal casting. I'm aware that
dicing refers to moulds [molds], but am perplexed by the other reference
(dicerking). I realize this may have been the company's proper name or
simply a slip of the tongue.

Can anyone enlighten me?

Am still eager to hear >from anyone who'd like to share information about
their "Jewish tailor" immigrant ancestors in Birmingham, especially any who
lived in the back-to-back housing, attended Singers Hill shul, or the
Hebrew School in Birmingham.
