Charles T. Robey of Coventry ran a mail order business and modestly described himself as "The World's Provider". Sometimes he even advertised as "Geo. Robey", probably to gain attention by cashing in on the name of this famous music hall artist.

The Robeyphone was a cheap machine assembled from bought in components. It could be delivered with 24 records on payment of 4/6d deposit.
