Making a difference in your community since 1884

Founder John Jackson Saint was just 20 when he moved from the industrial border town of Haltwhistle to the prosperous city of Carlisle in 1881.

Within 3 years, he qualified as a Chartered Accountant and set up his own accountancy business – and that’s when the seeds of Saint & Co were first sown.
