About Us

First Established 1982

How Berkeley Guard Began

Berkeley Guard was founded in 1982 by Julian Berkeley, second son of Sir Lennox Berkeley, musician and composer and it is still a privately owned family business today. We do little advertising, preferring client referrals. Initially Berkeley Guards were installed mostly in the west end of London from our office in Notting Hill Gate. In 1989 our administration moved to the Berkshire / Hampshire borders and 20 Powis Mews became an engineer base. Berkeley Guard purchased Burglarm Security of Romsey in 2006 and the Berkeley Guard Group was formed.

How Burglarm Security Began

John Tongs founded Burglarm Security in 1968 in Southampton. The Company moved to larger premises at Romsey on the M3/M27 corridor in August 1998. Burglarm prided itself in its ability to install and maintain large commercial CCTV systems as well as domestic and commercial Intruder Alarms and Access Control Systems. Following the death of John Tongs and later his partner, Julie Irving, Burglarm Security was purchased by Berkeley Guard Ltd in 2006 and the Berkeley Guard Group was formed.

And Now

The Berkeley Guard Group installs and maintains approved security systems throughout London and southern England. Each system is designed specifically for the property in question so a site survey is strongly recommended. The survey and Risk Assessment is entirely free and normally takes between 30 & 60 minutes and offers a good opportunity to discuss your personal requirements.You will be looked after by an Account Manager who will provide an honest review of your security from a business which has specialised in looking after people and their property for 34 years!  Our friendly staff, quite a few of whom have been with us for over fifteen years, will be glad to help you arrange and appointment.
